General Officer Commanding-in-Chief (GOC-in-C) of the Northern Command, Lt General Sanjiv Chachra, Wednesday during the Northern Command’s investiture ceremony at Akhnoor said the Army will have to be more prepared, prudent and more aware and take precautionary measures accordingly this year as some Taliban elements might come over to Jammu and Kashmir after the US troops pull out in Afghanistan, besides the disturbance in neighbouring Pakistan which will have some impact on this side of the Line of Control.
“Though there had been a perceived peace in the state during 2013, the terrorist infrastructure including training camps and the intent to create disturbance remain,” Gen Chachra said. As such, the current year is a period to consolidate and reach out to ensure that peace prevails, he said. To achieve this, troops along the LoC have been directed to remain alert against nefarious designs of the adversary.
To a question about terrorists’ plan to disrupt the coming Lok Sabha elections in the state, he said they will try to scuttle democratic process as terror infrastructure is present in the state as well as across the border. The troops, apart from ensuring zero infiltration from across the LoC, are also going after terrorist leaders within the state, he added.
