Pak Army Says No Launch Pads, Terrorists In PoK After Indian General's Claims

Reacting to Defence Minister Rajnath Singh's recent statement hinting at retrieving PoK, “As far as the Indian Army is concerned, it will carry out any order given by the government of India. We are always ready for it,” Lt Gen Dwivedi said

The Pakistan Army rejected on Thursday what it called an “unwarranted statement” by a high-ranking Indian Army officer about the presence of launching pads and terrorists in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).

On Tuesday, General Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Northern Command, Lt Gen Upendra Dwivedi said that around 160 terrorists are waiting on the launch pads in PoK for an opportunity to sneak into India.

Reacting to Defence Minister Rajnath Singh's recent statement hinting at retrieving PoK, Lt Gen Dwivedi said a parliamentary resolution exists on the subject, therefore it is nothing new. “As far as the Indian Army is concerned, it will carry out any order given by the government of India. We are always ready for it,” he said.

The “unwarranted statement” of a high-ranking Indian general concerning PoK is “an apt manifestation” of the Indian army’s “delusional mindset” and it showed the vivid imprint of domestic political showboating on Indian military thought, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) - the media wing of the army - said in a series of tweets.

“The fallacious remarks and unfounded allegations of so-called ‘launch-pads’ and ‘terrorists’ are an attempt to divert attention,” it said.

It said that the Pakistan military has the capability and preparation to thwart “any misadventure or aggression against our territory.”
