Army prepared to deal with any security challenge along LoC: Gen Bipin Rawat


The Indian Army on Tuesday said Pakistan had not cranked up its deployment of military forces along the Line of Control in any significant manner, though there have been “some limited forward movement of military equipment” to plug operational gaps.

Army chief General Bipin Rawat, on his part, downplayed Indian and Pakistani troop movements on either side of the 778-km long LoC amidst heightened bilateral tensions over Kashmir, stressing they were basically “precautionary” in nature and nothing to be “concerned about”.

Senior officers say there has been no large-scale troop movement yet by Pakistan despite it also threatening to redeploy some of its forces from the Afghan border to the eastern one with India to put pressure on the US to intervene after the Modi government revoked the special status of J&K and split the state into two union territories.
