NEW DELHI: Army chief Gen Bipin Rawat today made it clear that more surgical strikes cannot be ruled out as India has the “right to retaliate” if Pakistan does not react positively to offers of peace.
Gen Rawat also said India needs to “wait and watch” the Pakistani response in Jammu and Kashmir.
He accepted that challenges of proxy war, insurgency and terrorism will keep India embroiled for “years to come”.
The Gen said the DGMOs of both sides have spoken to each other and want peace and tranquillity along the Line of Control (LoC).
The two officers spoke on November 23 and since then there has been relative peace along the LoC, he said. (AGENCIES)
