Indian Army Chief threatens to cross LoC and International borders with Pakistan
NEW DELHI - Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat threatens to cross Line of Control and the International borders along with Pakistan to counter terrorists threat, Indian media had revealed.
Army Chief General Bipin Rawat has said the Indian Army will cross border if needed. Rawat has said that the surgical strikes have sent across a message that the Line of Control (LoC) will be “sacrosanct” so long as Pakistan does not vitiate the atmosphere.
Speaking with the Times of India in an interview, General Rawat said it would no longer be “hide and seek” and if India had to cross the border, it would do so through air, ground route or both, referring to the surgical strikes.
"The strikes have delivered the message that the Line of Control (LoC) will remain sacrosanct as long as the other side remains quiet and does not vitiate the atmosphere. Pakistan controls the terrorists, who act as its proxies. It’s no longer going to hide and seek. If we have to go across, we will, through the air or the ground route or both," Rawat told TOI in an interview.
The Army chief also accused Pakistan of supporting terrorism, despite India giving them evidence required.
