As India commemorates 20 years of the Kargil conflict, Army Chief General Bipin Rawat warned Pakistan to never attempt a repeat of the “misadventure”.
Speaking at a ceremony for commemoration of 20 years of Kargil Vijay Diwas in Drass, he said, “My warning to Pakistan is do not ever attempt such a misadventure any time, in the future. Anywhere, anytime do not think of it. Misadventures are normally not repeated. You’ll get a bloodier nose next time.
“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,” he said.
Referring to the advantageous position Pakistani infiltrators occupied during the Kargil war Rawat said, “No matter what heights they capture the Indian army will always get back to them and recapture those heights. This was evident during the Kargil war in 1999.”
