Expressing concern over the kind of education being imparted in the government schools of Jammu and Kashmir, Army Chief General Bipin Rawat on Friday said there was an urgent need to revamp the education system, as the students have been given "misleading" tuition.

Speaking on the occasion General Rawat complimented DRDO and said CBRN threat is becoming a reality, particularly from the "non-state actors" and he is sure that DRDO's long-term perspective plan in conjunction and integrated perspective plan of the services must encompass development of mitigation of technologies against such CBRN threats.

"We will not allow our territory to be invaded upon".

"The PLA has occupied the northern Doklam area". The Chinese are still there in North Doklam, but the equipment has gone back. Once winter gets over, we can expect movement again. Why are they taking risks? "China is a powerful country but we are not a weak nation", Bipin said, Times of India reports. Militarily, the focus has to shift to the northern borders - for too long we have focused on the western borders. The event provides an opportunity for the stakeholders to interact and understand the requirements of each other and respond in a way to bring coherence in the system that will eventually strengthen their partnerships and enhance the National preparedness level. "Also some control has to be exercised on Madrasas and Masjid", he said.

"But to say complete pressure has been put on Pakistan... let us see it is a step by step process. If you are putting a map of Jammu and Kashmir, then you may as well put maps of every state", Rawat said.

"In 2017, our focus of the operations was in South Kashmir". Though the government is dealing with China in a holistic manner, with the diplomatic engagement "going well", India should take care to ensure its neighbours like Nepal, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Myanmar, Bhutan and Afghanistan "do not drift away" from it.

Amid aggressive Chinese efforts to increase its influence in the region, the army chief said that India can not allow its neighbours to drift away to China.

"Ceasefire violations have increased because Pakistan posts supporting terrorists are being destroyed", he said. "They (Pakistan) are feeling the pain", he said.
