Everybody takes precautions and one should not be too concerned, Army chief Gen. Bipin Rawat said on Tuesday, responding to questions on reports of military movement by Pakistan along the Line of Control (LoC).

“Everybody does precautionary deployments and movement of precautionary resources. We should not get too concerned about it. That is normal,” Gen. Rawat said. He was speaking to the media on the sidelines of a seminar on defence start-ups organised by the Society of Indian Defence Manufacturers and the Confederation of Indian Industry.

After the removal of special status under Article 370 and bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir by the government last week, Army sources had said that they expected infiltration and Cease Fire Violations (CFV) to go up along the LoC in the coming days. Asked about it, Gen. Rawat said, “if the adversary has to activate the LoC, the choice is his”.
On the assessment of the security situation on the LoC in the aftermath of recent developments in Jammu and Kashmir, Gen. Rawat said that as far as army and services were concerned, “we have to be always prepared. The assessment is should anything go wrong we are prepared”.

Following reports of a possible terror threat from sea, senior Navy officers had already stated that the “country’s coastal security set-up is on high alert”.
