Army Chief General Bipin Rawat has said that in view of the current situation of Jammu and Kashmir, there is a need to make another surgical strike against the terrorists. During a conversation with a news channel on Monday, when he was asked if he thinks that another surgical strike is needed, he said this. He said in an interview to India Today Channel, “I believe there is a need for one more action (surgical strike) But I would not want to disclose how we want to do it,”
After the Uri terrorist attack in 2016, the army had killed Pakistani militants after crossing the Line of Control on 28-29 September night. Bipin Rawat said that despite the ceasefire by Pakistan, the intrusion of terrorists across the border continues. But, it can not be allowed further. The necessary steps will be taken to stop the terrorists and maintain peace in the Kashmir Valley.
Earlier on Sunday, Rawat had supported the decision of the Indian government to cancel the talk with Pakistan. He had said that both dialogue and terrorism can not continue together. The Indian government had canceled talks between the foreign ministers of both countries in New York. Government of India had taken this step against issuing postage stamps on terrorist Burhan Wani in Pakistan and the brutal killing of three policemen and in Jammu and Kashmir.
