Army Chief General Bipan Rawat has once again lashed out at Pakistan . In his latest attack Rawat has accused Pakistan of trying to vitiate the atmosphere in the country. This comment from him comes days after he had warned about Pakistan’s attempts to revive insurgency in Punjab all over again like it did in the early 80s.
Rawat also stressed that people needed to be careful during the ongoing festival season to prevent anti-national forces from succeeding in their nefarious designs.
“See we have a neighbouring country which always tries to vitiate atmosphere here. Our country is progressing which is not liked by them,” Rawat told the media here.
Rawat had on Saturday said that “external linkages” were trying to “revive insurgency” in Punjab and Assam and if early action was not taken, it would be too late.
Noting that Punjab was progressing at a “very fast” pace, Rawat said attempts were being made to disrupt peace in the state.
“I have been reading what is coming out in the media. There is Referendum 2020 coming in the UK… Whatever we call it but there is an attempt being made to disrupt the peace again in Punjab,” he said.
“We have to be careful,” Rawat added.
