Jingoism resounds in General Bipin Rawat's recent statements

Jingoism resounds in General Bipin Rawat's recent statements”

Perhaps he was just trying to make a case for the Army's urgent need to upgrade and modernise in order to face a two-pronged threat. He was speaking at a seminar organised by the Centre for Land Warfare Studies.

Shuang also suggested that Gen. Rawat should refer to President Xi's contention that India and China are each other's development partners and not threats.

China on Thursday said that Army Chief General Bipin Rawat's comment that Beijing was testing India's limits was contrary to the views expressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Xi Jinping during their meeting in Xiamen this week.

The Indian army chief's controversial remarks of "two-front war" with China and Pakistan have triggered a new controversy to which Beijing reacted sharply and now the state media issues a stern warning to New Dehli.

"Generals in India need to form some basic knowledge about the current situation".

Rawat said that China is resorting to salami slicing (a series of many small actions, performed by clandestine means, to achieve bigger goals or results that would be hard to perform at one go) and testing out limits of threshold which could gradually emerge into conflict. Anyhow, if India is ready for war, we should also not lower our guards and take all possible measures to bolster our defence and modernise our forces especially Pakistan Navy and Pakistan Air Force as these remain neglected and as a effect the enemy has significant edge on air and naval fronts.

China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi today said relations between China and India were "not derailed" while admitting that ties were "damaged and affected" during the 73-day long Doklam standoff.

Yesterday, a Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson wondered whether General Rawat was authorised to speak and if his comments represented the Indian government's position.

"Whether these conflicts will be confined or limited in space and time or whether these can expand into an all-out war along the entire front (remains to be seen)", the Army chief said. Gen. Rawat also wondered how long the country will continue to tolerate the proxy war by Pakistan and when it would conclude that Pakistan has crossed the threshold limit, adding the scope of a possible conflict is hard to predict.

"Let the first India discipline the second one and the Indians with dignity should take care of the mouths of senior officials like Rawat", it said.

It said it seems that there are two Indias, one that is thriving and as one of the BRICS countries the same as China; and the other that keeps provoking and tangling with China.
