Will Call Pakistan's Nuke Bluff If Tasked To Cross Border: Army Chief

Will Call Pakistan's Nuke Bluff If Tasked To Cross Border: Army Chief

Army chief General Bipin Rawat on Friday called for a major revamp of the entire government school system in trouble-torn Kashmir, stressing that the youth were being radicalised by the "corrupted" basic education structure and disinformation being spread by madrassas, masjids and social media.

He said both India and China were very keen on having a hotline between the Indian Army's Director General of Military Operations (DGMO) and the Chinese officer holding similar position.

"China is a powerful country but we are not a weak nation... We also need to build capacity to move forces from western sector to northern sectors".

Addressing his annual media conference on the eve of Army Day, Gen Rawat said India had to stop Chinese troops from making the road in southern Doklam since otherwise it would have altered the status quo by allowing China to claim the whole Doklam plateau.

General Rawat, who had previously also highlighted on the need for technologically advanced weapons and equipment, said that threat from CBRN weapons is fast becoming a concern.

In Jammu and Kashmir, the focus of the military action would shift to areas in north Kashmir such as Baramulla, Pattan, Sopore, Kupwara, Handwara, Lolab and areas north of Bandipora.

However, Rawat admitted that the Chinese troop strength in Doklam had gone down recently.

He asked for a "wait-and-watch" approach on the impact of U.S. pressure on Pakistan, arguing that the USA also has its own compulsions vis-à-vis Pakistan. "We are prepared to handle", the Army Chief said while assuring that the security forces are manning the border continuously.

The stand-off was resolved after Prime Minister Narendra Modi intervened and took up the issue with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Hamburg during the G-20 summit past year. Hiranyagarbha - the Terrabit Transport Cross Connect, a trusted network router & Army Air Defence Deployment Simulator System (A2D2S2) were also unveiled.

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

Asked about the "pressure" being exerted on Pakistan by U.S., he said: "It would be premature to say what will be the impact of the pressure". He said that we have to look at what we require to fight the future wars. It will not be proper to comment on the issue, he said.
