Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat said on Thursday that if the government wants to take action in PoK then the army will take over the operation to recapture the Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) from the Pakistan. Indian army is always ready.
Bipin Rawat was replying to a media question on the statement of Union Minister Jitendra Singh. Jitendra Singh said in his statement that the next agenda of the government is to get PoK again and make it a part of India.
Bipin Rawat said to the media, “The central government decides all actions. The agencies working under the government have to act according to their instructions. The Indian army is always ready for any action.”
Jitendra Singh is the Minister of State in the PMO. On the completion of 100 days of Modi government, he gave a statement on PoK talking about his government achievements.
Jitendra Singh said in Jammu, “Now the next agenda is to regain PoK and make it a part of India. It is not just my or my party’s commitment, but it is the commitment of 1994 government led by PV Narasimha Rao. It was part of a resolution unanimously passed by Parliament.”
Earlier the Defense Minister Rajnath Singh said, ‘Now there will be talk on POK.’ On August 18, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh first made a statement about Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (POK). Rajnath Singh said that if India talks to Pakistan, then it will only be on ‘Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK)’. Rajnath Singh said this while starting an election rally in Panchkula, Haryana.
