The Indian army is on alert, not just on the line of actual control (LAC) bordering China, but along the entire line of control (LoC) with Pakistan, which is seeing an increase in ceasefire violations, particularly since August last year when the government altered the special status in Jammu and Kashmir.
The LoC is witnessing 300 to 400 violations every single month. The government made statements on both the LAC and the LoC this week, without giving the monthly breakup.
According to a report tabled in the Parliament on the first day of the current session, 3,186 ceasefire violations by the Pakistan Army have been reported this year along the Indo-Pak border between January and September this year.
The violations have nearly doubled from the 1629 reported in 2018. In 2019, the figure stood at 3168 for the entire year.
Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat has often spoken of being prepared for a two-front aggression which is currently under play on the LAC as well as the LoC.
