ATHANKOT: General Officer Commanding-in-Chief (GOC-in-C) of the Western Command Lt. Gen. K.J. Singh on Saturday said there are some ‘disturbing’ inputs about a terror attack in country aimed at creating the ‘maximum media impact’ during the Shivratri festival and the ongoing Parliament session.
“There are security-related problems today. Maha Shivratri is coming, there are inputs which are disturbing but notwithstanding that extra care has been taken,” Lt. Gen. Singh told reporters here.
“Elaboration is neither required nor warranted. These events (terror attacks) are planned to create maximum media impact and when can you create a media impact when Parliament is in session, when a festival is taking place, so both happen to be going on.. So that is why, there are inputs but we have taken steps against that. I must assure you of that,” he said.
The Western Army Commander further said that such activities will not deter a great nation as the Indian Army is fully geared to meet any eventuality.
"We want to tell whoever has got these mischievous intentions that nothing can deter us, one Pathankot, one Arnia, one Janglot, once more Samba, cannot deter us. This nation is too great. Indian army is fully organised. We will take care of every situation,” Lt Gen Singh said.
