Lieutenant General Ranbir Singh on Friday addressed the youth of Bhaderwah in Doda district, Jammu and Kashmir. During his address Lt. Gen Singh spoke about the continuous efforts for infiltration by Pakistan. He also said that the Indian Army is fully prepared to tackle any issues.
Speaking on Pakistan's continuous efforts for infiltration Lt. Gen Ranbir Singh said, "The Indian Army is fully prepared and will be able to take on any challenge depending on the conditions and the opportunities at that particular time. Our warning is still intact if anybody from the other side of the Line of Control (LoC) tries to enter in India. Along with the support of Pakistan, if some people try to cross the LoC and come inside, India we will give them a befitting reply."
"Our plan on this issue is very clear and our soldiers on the Loc have also been given very clear orders. For instance, recently there were few people gathered on the Pakistan side, so the officials from there stopped them and sent them back to their respective places. But if any such efforts will be taken from their side we will surely give them a reply."
According to reports, Pakistan has activated at least 20 terror camps and another 20 launch pads along the Line of Control with increased efforts to ensure the infiltration of as many terrorists as it can into Jammu and Kashmir before the onset of winter, officials said on Tuesday.
The terror training camps and launch pads, with at least 50 terrorists in each, were activated after these were temporarily shut down following the bombing of a CRPF bus in Pulwama in February and the subsequent retaliatory bombing of terror camps in Balakot by the Indian Air Force.
Since the terrorists have not been able to carry out any major attack, the Pakistani agencies were trying hard to push as many terrorists as they could into Jammu and Kashmir.
"We have intelligence inputs that Pakistan has activated at least 20 terror training camps and another 20 launch pads with about 50 terrorists in each. All these terrorists will infiltrate through LoC wherever and whenever there are opportunities," the official said.
