Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor on Thursday accused India of passing “provocative remarks” and using tension along

the Line of Control to drive attention away from its internal chaos over the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Act.
“Provocative statements and preparations for escalation along LOC by Indian COAS appear to be an effort as usual to divert world attention from wide spread protests in

India against CAB. Pakistan Armed Forces shall befittingly respond to any Indian misadventure or aggression,” the DG ISPR tweeted.

befittingly to any aggression or misadventure by Indian troops on the border with Pakistan.
Indian army chief General Bipin Rawat, in suggestive and provocative remarks, had on Wednesday said that the situation along the LoC could escalate any time and that

the Indian army was prepared for the spiraling of the escalation matrix, The Times of India reported.
