Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat has claimed that Indian occupational forces are interacting with Kashmiris “normally like before” and they would further hope to meet them without guns, “also like before”.
Speaking to media on Tuesday, General Rawat said, “If the adversary wants to activate the LoC, that’s their choice. Everybody does [the] precautionary deployment, we should not get too concerned about it.”
He added, “Our interaction with Kashmiri people is normal like earlier. We used to meet them without guns in the 70s and 80s and we hope that we continue to meet them without guns.”
He said the Indian forces are prepared for any kind of “adverse actions” by Pakistan.
