In message to China, Army Chief says don’t test our patience

Srinagar: Army chief General MM Naravane reviewed the security
situation along the Line of Control (LoC) in Kashmir on Thursday and lauded
the troops for the high level of operational preparedness.

“There’ve been decades of mistrust between Pakistan and India and the
situation can’t change overnight,” the Army chief was quoted as saying by ANI
during his ongoing two-day visit to Kashmir to review the security situation
in the Union Territory.

“If they continue to observe ceasefire, stop and desist from pushing
terrorists across India then these steps will incrementally build up trust.
Onus is entirely on Pakistan,” General Naravane said.

Gen. Naravane arrived on a two-day visit to Kashmir on Wednesday to review the
overall security scenario in the valley. “On the second day of his two-day
visit to #Kashmir, General MM Naravane #COAS reviewed the security situation
along the Line of Control,” the Army wrote on its official Twitter handle.

It said the local commanders briefed the Chief of Army Staff on the existing
security situation and the measures instituted to foil infiltration bids by
terrorists.

“#COAS also interacted with the troops and complimented them for their high
morale and the high state of operational preparedness,” the Army added.

On his arrival in Srinagar on Wednesday, Gen. Naravane, accompanied by
Lieutenant General YK Joshi, the Northern Army Commander, and Lieutenant
General D P Pandey, the Chinar Corps Commander, visited units and formations
in the hinterland, where he was briefed by the local commanders on the
existing security situation.

The Army chief was also briefed about the measures being taken to identify and
target the over ground workers” (OGWs) network involved in the radicalisation
and recruitment of youngsters into terrorist ranks. Efforts to prevent local
recruitment and facilitate the surrender of local terrorists were also
discussed.

The Army chief’s arrival in Kashmir assumes significance as it comes on a day
when the ceasefire between India and Pakistan along the LoC completed 100
days.

While interacting with the troops, the Chief of Army Staff expressed his
appreciation to the Jawans and commanders, who are relentlessly battling the
dual challenges of Pakistan-abetted terror and the COVID-19 pandemic.

He reinforced the need to be prepared to meet the emerging security challenges
effectively.
