Education cap issue: Army evolving better system, says Rawat

Army Chief General Bipin Rawat blamed the "corrupted education system" of Jammu and Kashmir for spreading an anti-India propaganda in its schools. Terrorists are a disposable commodity in Pakistan and the Indian Army approach has been to ensure that it feels the pain, he said.

The army chief said India can not allow its neighbours to drift away to China. "We are continuously manning the border", he said regarding the Doklam standoff.

The Army Chief stressed on the need modern weapons and technology.

Gen. Rawat said the army was working on a plan to open two schools, and once they are operational, instead of granting financial aid, children of martyrs and physically disabled soldiers who are eligible for the help will be given admission in these schools.

Gen Rawat, however, said the government was considering procuring the missile system from Israel using the government-to-government route. Chinese troops were very well equipped. "The time has come for India to shift focus to its northern border", he said while adding that "the country was capable of handling China's assertiveness along it".

A status orange weather warning has been issued for all of Ireland
Overnight fog and any frost should clear. "Radiation fogs usually dissipate soon after sunrise as the ground warms". Wrexham is again covered in the weather warning, which is the second to be issued in two days.

Expanding the threats, the Chief of Army Staff said the Chinese focus may move to possibility of cyber attacks and information warfare rather than physical hostilities along the LAC. On December 28, Indian troops foiled attempts by Chinese road building teams to construct a track around 1 km inside the Indian territory in Tuting, government sources had said.

The Army Chief also said it would be premature to assess the impact of US President Donald Trump's decision to put pressure on Pakistan to act against terror groups operating from its soil.

The stand-off was resolved after Prime Minister Narendra Modi intervened and took up the issue with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Hamburg during the G-20 summit a year ago.

"Even if it would have escalated we were prepared (as) the terrain usually favours us". "The other issue is of the madrasas and masjids - what is being informed to them (the students) or incorrectly informed to them is through the madrasas and masjids".

He asked for a "wait-and-watch" approach on the impact of U.S. pressure on Pakistan, arguing that the USA also has its own compulsions vis-à-vis Pakistan. "I think we should wait and watch", he said.
