Army chief downplays Pakistan ramping up troops along LoC
New Delhi: Army Chief Gen Bipin Rawat on Tuesday said Pakistan deploying additional military resources along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir over the last few days is normal and not a matter of concern, asserting that Indian troops are prepared to deal with any security challenge in the region.
The Army chief said every country takes precautionary measures and there is no reason to worry about the deployment of additional forces by Pakistan along LoC.
On whether the hostilities along the LoC are going to go up in the days to come, Gen Rawat said the choice is with Pakistan.
"If the adversary wants to activate the LoC, the choice is his," the Army chief said. The Pakistan Army is moving big guns to the LoC.
The Army has been put on high alert along the LoC to effectively repulse any possible Pakistani misadventure in the wake of India's decisions on Jammu and Kashmir.
