Prepared for more face-offs in Doklam, says Army chief

"We are prepared", said Army chief General Bipin Rawat, in the backdrop of the People's Liberation Army needling India with as many as 415 "border transgressions" across the Line of Actual Control (LAC) previous year, which also saw the 73-day face-off at Doklam and 215 other troop confrontations.

"Unless the pain is felt by the Pakistan Army, it would send terrorists, who are disposable commodities for them".

Acknowledging the suspension of military aid to Pakistan by the US, General Rawat averred it was premature to talk how much of an impact it would have on Pakistan, India and the extended neighborhood.

India will handle China 's growing assertiveness and has stepped up patrols on their disputed border to head off more standoffs, the country's top army officer declared on Friday. "If given the task, we will not say we can not cross the border because they have nuclear weapons", he said. Rawat said the troops "were ready to cater" to any situation should the need arise. It shows that we are better prepared: "Army Chief General Bipin Rawat on stylised bulletproof helmets", Rawat said at a press conference here.

Stating that "terrorism in J&K is not over", Gen Rawat said the Army will shift its focus to north Kashmir this year, after having focused on south Kashmir last year. "We will not allow our territory to be intruded". On the increasing border transgressions and contact between Indian and Chinese soldiers, he said the numbers have gone up as India had deployed more troops in more forward positions along the border.

Referring to the United States warnings to Pakistan over its handling of terrorism, he said India will have to wait and see its impact. Hiranyagarbha - the Terrabit Transport Cross Connect, a trusted network router & Army Air Defence Deployment Simulator System (A2D2S2) were also unveiled.

The issue has been resolved through established mechanism, spokesperson in the Ministry of External Affairs Raveesh Kumar said yesterday.

"What is being incorrectly informed to them (youth of Kashmir) is through the madrasas and the masjids".

General Rawat also said that unlike the conventional military, CBRN combat requires operations in a "highly unpredictable" environment, where the adversaries may use "asymmetrical" means to counter India.
