Indian military commanders warn PM Modi over military action against Pakistan
NEW DELHI (92 News) – Following the warning of Pakistan Army over any attack on the country, the Indian military commanders warned Prime Minister Narendra Modi regarding military action against Pakistan.
This was stated during a high-level meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The meeting was attended by Indian Interior Minister Rajnath Singh, Defense Minister Manohar Parikar, National Security Adviser Ajit Doval, Indian Army Chief General Dilbir Singh and other high-ranking civil and military officials.
During the meeting, Indian prime minister and defense minister asked for options regarding aggression against Pakistan.
General Dilbir Singh said that Pakistan army has raised its defensive posture along the Line of Control (LoC).
He said that he held meetings with Field Commanders and also visited the Line of Control (LoC) himself, adding that any adventure against Pakistan would be dangerous for India itself.
Indian Air Force chief Arup Raha was not present in the main meeting, a sign some security experts took to signal that the Indian government doesn’t conside air strikes across the LoC.
Tensions between South Asia’s rival nuclear-armed states, India and Pakistan, are continuing to surge in the wake of the attack mounted Sunday morning on an Indian military base at Uri, in Indian-held Kashmir.
The attack claimed the lives of 18 Indian soldiers and all four assailants. Some 20 other Indian soldiers remain in critical condition as the result of the most deadly attack on Indian troops in Kashmir in more than two decades.
