- "The majority of the terrorists who sheltered them have either been killed or have distanced themselves from this work," he added.
Chinar Corps Commander Lt Gen ADS Aujla described the situation at the Line of Control as “normalcy” in many parameters, with the challenge being to maintain the ceasefire.
“A lot of parameters are showing signs of normalcy, and the challenge for us is to ensure that we can sustain this ceasefire and phase of normalcy that we’re seeing on a daily basis,” Chinar Corps Commander Lt Gen ADS Aujla said.
On Defence Minister Rajnath Singh’s recent statement regarding Gilgit-Baltistan, Lt. General ADS Aujla stated, “Indian army is fully prepared and we are ready for any action on orders from the government.”
It should be noted that, while addressing Pakistan on the Shaurya Divas programme in Srinagar, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh stated, “We have just begun walking north; our journey will be complete when we implement the resolution passed unanimously by the Indian Parliament on February 22, 1994, by reaching Gilgit-Baltistan.”
The General Officer Commanding (GOC) of Chinar Cops, ADS Aujla, recently interacted with media personnel in Srinagar at 15 Corps headquarters about the Defence Minister’s statement and the current situation in Kashmir and along the border.
“Whenever the Central Government makes such a decision, orders will come to us, and in such a situation, we are fully prepared,” General Aujla said. Aside from our traditional strength, we are also modernising ourselves so that we do not have to look back in such a situation.”
He also stated that the Indian Army’s capacities and capabilities have been upgraded over the last 75 years. Our preparedness is excellent, and whenever it is required, you will notice a significant difference.
“Right now, the situation is completely under control,” General Aujla said, “but whenever there is an opportunity, there are attempts to infiltrate, but the Indian Army is ready with full force to protect our border.”
In response to a question about the situation following the ceasefire declaration and the repeal of Article 370, General Aujla stated, “It has been a very good year in terms of the restoration of peace in the valley, showing the lowest infiltration in 32 years, in this entire year until the month of October, only eight terrorists tried to infiltrate, of which three were eliminated.”
“Despite the fact that all efforts are on their side. Only a few days ago, we foiled an infiltration attempt in the Tangadhar sector. However, the situation now is very different from previous years. The valley is currently undergoing development.
“The majority of the terrorists who sheltered them have either been killed or have distanced themselves from this work,” he added.
