New Delhi, Jan. 1 (ANI): Director general of India’’s paramilitary Border Security Force (BSF) M.L. Kumawat has accepted that some activities are going on the Indo-Pak border, but added that Indian forces are prepared to take on any challenge from the enemy.
Kumawat said: There were some activities, but we are also ready. Our morale is high and there is no need to panic. No need to be perturbed or worried.
The BSF chief recently took stock of the situation on the western border in the three districts of Jaisalmer, Barmer and Sriganganagar.
Both India and Pakistan have ruled out the possibility of war.
Although many experts have ruled out the possibility of a war, the international community is exasperated over the tension prevailing between the two nuclear empowered nations.
China, Iran and the United States are continuously trying to calm things down.
India has blamed Pakistan for not fulfilling its earlier commitment to bring the perpetrators of Mumbai attacks to justice.
The South Asian neighbours both tested nuclear weapons in 1998. They have fought three wars since independence from Britain in 1947 and came to the brink of a fourth after gunmen attacked the Indian parliament on December 13, 2001. (ANI)
