Individual perception, says Rawat
The Chief of the Army Staff, General Bipin Rawat, on Saturday dismissed as “individual perception” the remarks made by former Northern Army Commander, Lieutenant-General D.S. Hooda (retired), on the surgical strikes carried out by Indian Army commandos in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir in 2016.
Asked about the remarks, Gen. Rawat said: “These are individual person’s perception. So let’s not comment on them.”
The Army chief noted that Lt. Gen Hooda (retd) was “one of the main persons involved in the conduct of these operations. So, I respect his words very much.”
