New Delhi, Sept 26: Army chief General Bipin Rawat on Monday said the cross-LoC surgical strike last year was a message to Pakistan and hinted at more strikes in the future if necessary.
â€œThe strikes were a message we wanted to communicate. I think they understood what we meant. These things could follow, if required,â€ Rawat said in response to a question on whether the message intended to be given through the September 28-29 surgical strike across the Line of Control in Pakistan-administered Kashmir was conveyed, in view of the continuing infiltration attempts and terror incidents.
He was speaking after the launch of book â€˜Indiaâ€™s Most Fearlessâ€™, along with former Army chief General Dalbir Singh (retd). The book has accounts of modern-day heroes from the three armed forces, including from those who led the surgical strikes conducted along the Myanmar border and across the LoC. (news agency)
