Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - Live - - FRONT PAGE - Shishir Gupta

NEW DELHI: De­fence min­is­ter Manohar Par­rikar said mil­i­tary com­man­ders had “full free­dom” to de­cide on how to con­duct their op­er­a­tions in J&K. Par­rikar’s re­marks come in the back­drop of a de­bate over army chief Bipin Rawat’s com­ments that those who hin­der counter-in­sur­gency op­er­a­tions or dis­play flags of Pak­istan and IS in Kash­mir will be con­sid­ered “anti-na­tional”, and sol­diers will not hes­i­tate to use weapons.
