Stop Bid To Revive Punjab Terror Now Or It’ll Be Too Late: General Rawat


Army chief General Bipin Rawat on Saturday put the spotlight on attempts to revive insurgency in Punjab through “external linkages” and warned that “it would be too late” if early action was not taken. His comments come in the background arrests of Khalistani elements with Pakistan connections and who are also associated with a controversial “Sikh referendum”.

Addressing a gathering of senior Army officers, defence experts and former senior officials of the government and police at a seminar on ‘Changing Contours of Internal Security in India: Trends and Responses’, Rawat said though Punjab had been peaceful for years now, there were external outfits and operatives trying to stoke the fire of militancy once again in the state.

“Let us not think that Punjab (situation) is over. We cannot close our eyes to what is happening in Punjab. And, if we do not take early action now, it will be too late,” he said. Read more
