Army cannot afford to lower guard along LoC: Gen Singh
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Jammu, Aug 11: Stressing that soldiers must remain vigilant along the Line of Control (LoC), Army Chief General V K Singh today said the country cannot afford to lower guard along the borders.
"Soldiers should remain vigilant and alert (along the LoC in JK)," General Singh told Army personnel during an interaction with them at forward areas of Pallwanwala and Sunderbani along the LoC in Jammu and Rajouri districts.
"Soldiers need to maintain a high state of morale to overcome the strenuous routine on the LoC. We cannot afford to lower our guard," he said, reviewing the counter-infiltration measures in place along the LoC with field officers.
The Army Chief also took stock of the various welfare measures initiated for soldiers and ex-servicemen.
He had arrived in Nagrota yesterday on a two-day visit of forward areas south of Pir Panjal Range.
Flanked by senior Army officers, General Singh visited forward posts along the LoC in Poonch and Rajouri sectors yesterday. He returned to Delhi this evening.
