Army Chief General Bipin Rawat on Saturday said that Pakistan was using terror to keep the pot boiling in Jammu and Kashmir since it was well aware they could never succeed. Accusing the neighbouring country of trying to stall development in the state, Rawat warned that India was strong enough to counter Pakistan’s evil designs and capable of carrying out different operations.
“Pakistan is fully aware they can never succeed, terror is another way by them to keep the pot boiling. They want to stall development in Kashmir but Indian state is strong enough to counter everything, and we are fully capable of carrying out different operations,” the Army chief as said.
Speaking on the death of a 22-year-old soldier following a head injury in an incident of stone-pelting in Anantnag district of South Kashmir yesterday, Rawat made the remarks. Rawat paid tribute at the Amar Jawan Jyoti in the national capital to mark Infantry Day.
