Army reveals Pak's terror plan, days after Rajnath slammed China-Pak 'mission'

Indian Army revealed Pakistan's plan to push terrorists across LoC days after the govt's China-Pakistan joint 'mission' revelation. Army said Intel suggests around 250 terrorists are waiting to infiltrate. “As far as winter time is concerned - like infiltration attempts are made during summer, only slightly lower levels of attempts are seen in winter. There is always an attempt to push terrorists across. If terrorists have been given equipment to hide and brave out the cold, we have much better equipment. Our capability to detect infiltrators is much better. We are stationed at positions on the ground which can prevent infiltration,” said Maj Gen Amardeep Singh Aujla. Pak's latest terror push comes amid tension between India, China at LAC. Days earlier, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh had spoken on border tension. Singh said Pakistan & China are creating border disputes under a 'mission'. Watch the full video for more.

‘Oppression increased in J&K after we decided to contest DDC polls’: PDP chief

PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday said elections are no solution to the Kashmir problem and called for a dialogue between India and Pakistan to address the issue. She also accused the BJP-led government at the Centre of “murdering the democracy” in the name of District Development Council (DDC) polls as alliance candidates were being confined to homes while others enjoyed full freedom to campaign. The PDP chief said the alliance candidates were not allowed to freely campaign for the DDC polls. "Our people do not have security. They have been confined to their homes and not allowed to run poll campaign while BJP candidates are freely roaming around. This is not done? Will this country run on the BJP's agenda?"They tell us not to talk about Article 370. BJP ministers visit Kashmir and nine out of 10 times, they talk about the revocation of Article 370. I fail to understand that when they are confident that Artilce 370 is gone and will not be restored, why do they get rattled so much when I speak about it," she said. Watch the full video for more details.
