NEW DELHI - Indian Army chief General Bipin Rawat on Sunday has asked the troops to stay prepared for the final action.
Rawat visited an airborne brigade in Agra and asked troops to stay prepared “to decisively deal with emerging challenges,” an army spokesperson said.
Rawat’s comments are significant against the backdrop of escalating military tensions between India and Pakistan following Pulwama attack, Hindustan Times has reported.
The failed aerial strikes by India were in retaliation for the suicide car bombing of a Central Reserve Police Force convoy in Pulwama in which 40 men were killed on February 14.
Pakistan subsequently retaliated back hard.
The army said Rawat reviewed the operational readiness of the para brigade and complimented the men for their “highest standards of training, operational readiness, morale and exemplary synergy with the IAF”.
