World News – Sending out a message to Pakistan, Army Chief Bikram Singh said that Indian soldiers would not remain quiet if the neighbouring country violated the ceasefire. However, Bikram Singh said that he didn’t want to comment on Pakistani Prime Minister Pervaiz Ashraf’s Ajmer visit.
“Our soldiers are not sitting idle. We won’t remain quiet if they violate the ceasefire. This keeps on happening at the ground. The battalion commanders are the best people to reply,” Singh replied when asked about the situation at the Line of Control.
However, he said the Indian Army had already conveyed its concern to the Centre on the issue of ceasefire violations, beheading of an Indian soldier and killing of another soldier by Pakistani troops in January. “At that time, we showed our concern. We have shown our emotions (to the Centre),” the Army Chief, who was here to attend the War Decorated India Triennial National Convention cum Reunion, said. Agencies
