Speaking at a press conference after a BSF official complained of starvation, he said that India’s surgical strikes along the de facto border with Pakistan in Kashmir can be repeated if the “situation warrants”.
This is not the first time that Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat has threatened Pakistan with the surgical strike.
Earlier, soon after assuming the charge of the 1.3 Million Indian Army General Bipin Rawat had threatened Pakistan with the surgical strike.
Modi Sarkar appointment of a junior Army Officer on the slot of the Indian Army Chief against the established norms and traditions of the Indian Army had raised serious eye brows inside India.
It was already predicted that selection of a junior officer for the post of the Army Chief had been made keeping in the view the factor that General Bipin Rawat had long experience of serving in Kashmir and along Pakistan border.
The Pakistan specific appointment of the Army Chief was indicative of the fact that PM Narendra Modi would continue to exert pressure on Pakistan at the eastern front and especially long the LoC.
However without taking notice of the miseries of the Indian Army soldiers recently aired in the media, Indian Army Chief continued to play the rhetoric of the Modi Sarkar surgical strike drama.
Few days ago the paramilitary soldier, who identified himself as Tej Bahadur Yadav of Border Security Force (BSF) accused senior officials of massive corruption that has forced soldiers to starve.
Yadav posted a couple of videos on Facebook showing the deplorable circumstances in which jawans are discharging their duties without being provided proper meals.
In yet another extreme incidence of indiscipline and criminality, Indian Army soldier killed at least 4 colleagues and injured several with gun fire over the issue of the refusal from the leave by the senior Army Officer.
