Army Chief warns Pakistan on 20th Kargil Vijay Diwas

Jul 26, 2019, 11.50 AM (IST)
In a warning to Pakistan on the 20th Kargil Vijay Diwas, Army Chief General Bipin Rawat asked the neighbouring country not to repeat any such misadventure, saying they will face even worse consequences. Army Chief General Bipin Rawat paid tribute at the war memorial in Dras, where in his message to Pakistan, he said, "Don't do it. Misadventures are normally not repeated. You'll get a bloodier nose next time." This came a day after the Army Chief ruled out Kargil-like misadventure by Pakistan saying the Indian Armed Forces were much more powerful than they were in 1999. "It was a big misadventure undertaken by the Pakistan army in 1999. They did not appreciate the will and the intent of the Indian political establishment and the Indian armed forces that we will never allow them to succeed, General Rawat said as he addressed the media a day ahead of the Kargil Vijay Diwas.
