Military ready for short wars- Indian Army Chief Dalbir Singh

NEW DELHI: Indian Army Chief Dalbir Singh has Tuesday stated that military is ready for short wars as the borders are live with frequent ceasefire violations and infiltration bids by Pakistan.

He was speaking at the Tri Service Seminar on the 1965 Indo-Pak War.

“We are acutely aware that the swift short nature of future wars is likely to offer limited warning time. This calls for maintaining very high level of operational preparedness at all times, it’s something that has now become important in our strategy,” the Army General said here.

He blamed Pakistan for playing tactics to create unrest in jammu and Kashmir and for ceasefire violation.

“Our threats and challenges have become more complex. The Indian army has increased in intensity in the past years. With frequent ceasefire violation and infiltration by our west neighbour, the border remains live and active. New methods are continued to be employed to create unrest in Jammu and Kashmir. The recent incidents of terrorist violence are clear points to extend violence to other areas,” He said.
