Jammu: Chief of Staff General Bipin Rawat stated that the Indian army is fully prepared, to deal with any security challenges arising on the international border, as well as the Line of Control, in Jammu-Kashmir. Chief of Staff General Rawat and Chief of the Northern Command Lieutenant General Ranbir Singh recently visited the Akhnoor Sector, in Jammu-Kashmir. At this time, General Rawat expressed satisfaction over the preparedness of the Indian army.
Chief of Staff General Rawat assessed the situation of cross-border firing, infiltration and the preparedness of the soldiers on the international border, along with the Line of Control. At this time, General Rawat said that the military is fully prepared to face any security challenges on the border. He also reviewed the advanced technologies and its benefits for military actions. Chief of Staff General Rawat and Chief of the Northern Command Lieutenant General Ranbir Singh interacted with the soldiers deployed in the Akhnoor sector. He commended their dedication towards duty and high standard of professionalism. He especially praised the soldiers from the White Night Corps.
This unit is deployed on the Line of Control and the international border in the Jammu region. White Night Corps also shoulder the responsibilities of the counter-terrorism actions and the development programs run by the military in Jammu-Kashmir.
Meanwhile, General Rawat also specially acknowledged the cooperation extended by the people living in the areas, near the international border and the Line of Control. He also said that it helps to maintain peace in the border region. Although the Line of control is silent as of now, the Pakistan military intermittently violates the ceasefire. The Indian army gives a fitting reply to the violation, and it has been reported in the media that the Pakistani military units have suffered significant losses in the Indian retaliation.
It is because of the aggressive policies of the Indian army and its war preparedness, and it is against this background that the visit of the Chief of Staff assumes significance.
