Lt. Gen. Upendra Dwivedi, commander of the Northern Army, stated on Tuesday that the Indian Army is prepared to carry out orders such as reclaiming Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.
The Northern Army commander spoke about how the security situation in Kashmir has changed significantly since Article 370 was repealed and how the civil administration is doing an excellent job of promoting peace, and development and keeping terrorism at bay.
“As far as the Indian Army is concerned, it will carry out any order given by the Government of India. Whenever such orders are given, we will always be ready for it,” said Lt Gen Upendra Dwivedi, Northern Army Commander, on Defence Minister Rajnath Singh’s statement of taking back PoK.
“The military is always ready to make sure that ceasefire understanding is never broken as it is in the interest of both nations, but if broken at any time, we will give them a befitting reply,” said Dwivedi, Northern Army Commander on the ceasefire agreement between India and Pakistan.
“The country has over 50 per cent of people below the age of 25. If we take them in as Agniveers, teach them and send them back, we will absorb some, others by paramilitary, and police forces and the remaining can be self-employed,” he stated.
The defence minister stated that Pakistan must pay a price for violating human rights in PoK when speaking at an infantry day event in Srinagar on October 27. He declared that the Indian government is dedicated to carrying out the 1994 Parliamentary decision regarding the return of the portion of Kashmir that is “illegal occupation Pakistan.”
