TIL Desk/National/Patiala/ Days after warning that attempts were being made to “revive insurgency” in Punjab, Army Chief General Bipan Rawat accused Pakistan of trying to vitiate the atmosphere in the country.
Rawat also stressed that people needed to be careful during the ongoing festival season to prevent anti-national forces from succeeding in their nefarious designs. “See we have a neighbouring country which always tries to vitiate atmosphere here. Our country is progressing which is not liked by them,” Rawat told the media here.
Rawat had on Saturday said that “external linkages” were trying to “revive insurgency” in Punjab and Assam and if early action was not taken, it would be too late. Noting that Punjab was progressing at a “very fast” pace, Rawat said attempts were being made to disrupt peace in the state.
“I have been reading what is coming out in the media. There is Referendum 2020 coming in the UK… Whatever we call it but there is an attempt being made to disrupt the peace again in Punjab,” he said. “We have to be careful,” Rawat added.
