Military option on cards but will exercise this only after talks fail, says CDS Bipin Rawat on Chinese transgression

Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) General Bipin Rawat, amid simmering tension between India and China at Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh, said that a military option is on the cards but will be exercised only over the failure of military and diplomatic level talks to deal with transgressions by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) in Ladakh.

“The military option to deal with transgressions by the Chinese Army in Ladakh is on but it will be exercised only if talks at the military and the diplomatic level fail,” reiterated CDS General Rawat.

Adding further, CDS Rawat, who was the Chief of the Indian Army during the 73-day military standoff against the PLA in Doklam in 2017, said that there is no lack of coordination among the principal intelligence agencies and the Indian Armed Forces are fully prepared to deal with any threat coming from China.
