外文标题：If our neighbours break rules, we won't sit quiet: Army chief
NEW DELHI: In a strong message to Pakistan and China over ceasefire violations, Army chief Gen Bikram Singh said on Monday that India will not sit quiet if its neighbours break rules on the border.
Addressing a press conference here, the Army chief said, "If rules are followed by our neighbors, we follow them too. If rules are broken, we won't sit on it, we will break them too."
On Jammu & Kashmir, the Army chief said he was against tampering with Afspa in J&K.
"Military viewpoint is that we have to wait for sometime to monitor the situation. Decision only after that," Gen Bikram Singh said when asked for his reaction on Afspa.
We have a focused commitment towards enhancing the combat power of the Army, General Bikram Singh said.
Speaking on the BDC agreement, the Army chief said, "This agreement will strengthen understanding at LAC level, HQ level and national level."
He said there is zero tolerance towards human rights violation in the Army.

the rules have already broken by the so called neighbors 'n' number of times...but still we seem to sit quiet
Laughable! Pakistan and China have been brazenly flouting all rules and getting away with it so far. Will empty talk act as a deterrence?
Is it really true ? Who can believe if government seems to be very weak while taking decisions on matter which is related to China. All of us know what happens when chinese troops set up their tents in Indian territoty.

I want be surprised if they start a war with Pakistan to divert attention from corruption and prevent total rout of congress in coming elections.
