Army Chief General Bipin Rawat on Saturday described as an “individual’s perception” the comments of former Northern Army commander, Lt Gen DS Hooda (Retd), that the 2016 surgical strikes against terror launch pads in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir were overhyped and given a political resonance.

General Rawat seemed to distance himself from Lt Gen Hooda’s comments, telling ANI, “These are an individual person’s perception. So let’s not comment on them,” even as he noted that Hooda was one of the main persons involved in the operation and he respected his opinion.
