The problem with us is the lack of leadership.

No longer are there excuses with the old political masters saying that the reason why we are in this state is because we were under colonial rule for 250 years. They turn around and say that the British left us almost fifty years ago. What have you done? They point to Singapore, they point to Malaysia, they point to Indonesia, and they point to Hong Kong. They say that they were also under colonial rule and look at the progress those countries have made.

If a man says he is not afraid of dying, he is either lying or is a Gurkha.

I have given my professional view now the government should take the decision.

(On question if he had chosen Pakistan at the time of partition) Then I guess, Pakistan would have won.

I wonder whether those of our political masters who have been put in charge of the defence of the country can distinguish a mortar from a motor; a gun from a howitzer; a guerrilla from a gorilla, although a great many resemble the latter.

Look, it’s my job to fight. it is my job to fight and win.

There will be no withdrawal without written orders and these orders shall never be issued.

Those who obstruct our operations during encounters and aren't supportive will be treated as overground workers of terrorists.

We would now request the local population that people who have picked up arms, and they are the local boys, if they want to continue with the acts of terrorism displaying flags of ISIS and Pakistan, then we will treat them as anti-national elements and go helter-skelter for them.

Our aim is to ensure peace. We are trying to ensure there is no need for conducting another surgical strike.

Bipin Rawat

Our offer to the adversary is if you reciprocate offer of peace in same manner, the need to conduct a surgical strike will not arise.

Bipin Rawat

We told them that the words should be supported by actions on the ground and our army is for peace and tranquility.

Bipin Rawat

But if that offer of peace and tranquillity is not reciprocated in an appropriate manner, this method of execution of operation (surgical strike) will continue.

Bipin Rawat

We will fire on infiltrating terrorists and we have conveyed this through our DGMO to the Pakistani side.
