Terrorist launch-pads have been reoccupied and camps activated across the Line of Control (LoC) in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, said Army Vice Chief Lt Gen SK Saini on Tuesday adding that his force is ready to meet these challenges.
“The situation in Jammu and Kashmir on both LoC and the hinterland is under control. We are fully geared up to meet challenges that come across,” Army Vice Chief Lt Gen Saini said.
“The launch pads have been reoccupied and terrorist camps are active in PoK. Ceasefire violations have gone up last year,” he added.
Saini was responding to ANI’s questions soon after receiving a guard of honour on his appointment as the Vice Chief of Army.
In the last few weeks, there have been reports of heightened terrorist activities in PoK backed by the Pakistan Army.
Asked to comment on his priorities as Vice Chief, he said: “Removing hollowness in terms of critical deficiencies of equipment, ammunition, etc, capability development along the Northern borders.”
