Pakistan would have to “take back bodies” if it dares to infiltrate again. Alerting Pakistan to not “attempt any misadventure”.Army Chief General Bipin Rawat warned .
meanwhile President of India Ram Nath Kovind lead the country on Friday in celebrating the valour of the fallen soldiers who lost their lives in the line of duty on the peaks of Kargil in 1999.
Every year, July 26 is observed as Kargil Vijay Diwas to commemorate the success of Operation Vijay and the victory of the Indian Army against infiltrating Pakistani troops, while defending the country’s integrity.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid his tributes on Twitter with images of his Kargil visit during the war in 1999.
‘Kargil Vijay Diwas’ is celebrated with heavy enthusiasm and vigour by military personnel at Dras-Kargil sector and the national capital New Delhi at Amar Jawan Jyoti, India Gate.
General rawat said, “Infiltration has come down because of our troops sitting alert at the border. Pakistan knows that if it’ll infiltrate, all they will have to do is come back and take mortal remains.”
The Army chief added, “Our soldiers have very little demands. We have to keep their morale high. A soldier fighting a proxy war needs tools for surveillance that helps him identify the enemy he needs his gun and armour. we are also looking at what else we need to fight this proxy war. We are in the process of modernising our forces but we cannot do it overnight.”
“These are desperate attempts to reignite a dying flame. They are doing every thing to keep the Kashmir issue alive. It has been proved that they are providing financial support to terrorists. Radicalisation on social media is being done to keep the Kashmir issue alive as they have sensed that Kashmir will not remain an international issue for long,” said Rawat.
