Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat has mentioned that armistice is holding along the Line of Control (LoC) as yet but the internal armistice process is being rattled by Pakistan by “infiltration of weapons and drugs employing drones”.
“Armistice henceforth along LoC is on hold, which is a good indication. At the same time, we’re also observing infiltration of weapons and ammunition, employing drones. It doesn’t promote peace as these drugs and weapons are meant to disturb the internal truce method,” Rawat told news agency ANI.
Alleging that India wants peace in the entire Jammu and Kashmir areas, Rawat stated, “If the internal peace method is disturbed, then we can’t really say that the truce is holding. The armistice doesn’t denote that you cease along boundaries, but you simultaneously create trouble in the remote lands.”
India and Pakistan had in February approved a strict practice of all agreements, understandings and break in war for the time being along the LoC and all other sectors.
Talking on theaterisation of power, Rawat stated that the process is going on well and it is gaining satisfactory progress.
“Among the three administrations, we had the option to settle most of the issues. There is a better understanding that if the three administrations amalgamate, they can bring about collaborative and execution conversion. Then I think, we will assure better effectiveness and exercising of our existing services. I think we’ll better rehearse for battle in the future,” he said.
He included that the final configuration will only be determined after the initial organisation is developed.
“Of course, we have to focus at the land-based theaters which will be Eastern and Western Theaters…How the final construction will develop will only occur after we have created the primary organisation and it will take some time…There is a necessity for one agency to control and assure that air management doesn’t lead to fratricide. Then we have a large boundary along the coastline and high sea in the Indian Ocean Region. We need to guarantee that we have one organisation looking after that,” he said.
