Addressing the annual press conference ahead of the Army Day, Gen Rawat said the situation in Jammu and Kashmir needs to be brought under better control and “we are adopting hard power and soft power approach”.

Gen Rawat emphasised that the Indian Army is very professional and does not target civilians intentionally. Read More
