*NEW DELHI*: Beating the war drums, Indian army Chief General Narvane gives another stern warning to Pakistan.
In a stern warning to Pakistan, Indian Army Chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane on Wednesday said that the country's armed forces will continue their policy of ''zero tolerance'' towards terrorism and that they are ready for any future warfare.
Speaking on the occasion of 72 Army Day celebrations, Gen Narvane said, ''The Indian Army is ever vigilant and keeping an eye on global developments.
We will continue to stick to our policy of zero tolerance towards terrorism and cross-border infiltration emanating from the neighbouring country.''
''There are many alternatives for dealing with terrorism and the Indian armed forces are fully prepared to thwart any challenge,'' Gen Naravane said.
In his first speech on the Army Day, Gen Naravane said the soldiers are the strength of the armed forces. Adding that India has “zero-tolerance” for terrorism, Army Chief said that the borders are strongly guarded and that India is ready for any future warfare.
The Army Chief congratulated the armed forces and their families on the occasion of Army Day. Saluting the soldiers for their valour, 'supreme sacrifice' and selfless devotion, chief Naravane said,
"The Indian Army is taking rapid steps with regard to 'technological embrace' and 'indigenisation'.
We shall continue to do all that we can to uphold our core values and ethos as also to live up to the trust reposed in us."
The warning from Gen Naravane came on the occasion of 72nd Army Day. Gen Naravane also reviewed the annual parade at the Cariappa Parade Ground in New Delhi. He also presented gallantry and other awards to his personnel.
