Youth in Jammu and Kashmir are being misguided: Army chief

Srinagr: Youths in Jammu and Kashmir are being misinformed and misguided by forces inimical to peace, Army Chief General Bipin Rawat today said.

Security forces have to devise ways to counter this, he said while addressing gentlemen cadets at the prestigious Indian Military Academy in Dehradun.

Rawat also said terrorism was the biggest challenge in front of the country as he urged the cadets to gear up to grapple with the scourge.

The army chief presided over a colourful passing out parade by 490 gentlemen cadets on the completion of their course.

He said it was time they put the lessons of valour and military skills learnt at the academy to the service of the nation.

The army chief, himself an alumnus of the IMA, said the academy imparts the best training to its cadets which matches up to international standards.
