Indian army chief pitches for control over mosques, madrasas, schools in Kashmir

"The process of disengagement at Doklam was to ensure that the soldiers of two armies are not face-to-face".

Asked about the "pressure" being exerted on Pakistan by United States, he said: "It would be premature to say what will be the impact of the pressure".

He highlighted that post the Doklam incident, the Army has increased patrolling activities in the northern border.

However, Rawat admitted that the Chinese troop strength in Doklam had gone down recently.

"We have the possibility of more movements after the winter is over". Why are they taking risks?

Acknowledging that China is exerting pressure on the Indian border, he said that China is a powerful country but we are not a weak nation. "Now the time has come for us to focus on the northern border...therefore our infrastructure development on the northern border has to be speeded up".

"Even if it would have escalated we were prepared (as) the terrain usually favours us".

Referring to the US' warnings to Pakistan over its handling of terrorism, Rawat said India will have to wait and see its impact. General Rawat said the Chinese had come with large manpower and equipment.

"In 2017, our focus of the operations was in South Kashmir". "Dealing with ceasefire violations, LoC, terrorists, the Army has been told by the government to conduct operations as it deems fit", Gen Rawat asserted.

He also said that India and China are working on establishing a hotline, like the one India has with Pakistan, and it will be in place soon. "They (Pakistan) are feeling the pain", he said.

The Army chief said that the forces need to update weapons and technology from time to time. "If there is a drop in infiltration from Pakistani side, we are willing to call a ceasefire".

Although swift retributions are lauded by the public, Army Chief General Bipin Rawat termed "rushing to Ops" a "worrisome phenomenon" connecting them to higher casualty rates.
