"The time had come for India to shift focus to its northern border".
Addressing the media ahead of the Army Day on January 15, he said road construction had been on in Doklam since 2000 but the Chinese soldiers had come close to Tosa Bala, dividing north and south Doklam in June past year just before the India-China standoff started. "The situation is not similar to 1962", the Army Chief said, referring to the war five and a half decades ago that India lost to China.
"We have to have good firewalls and systems", said Chief of Army Staff General Bipin Rawat in Delhi.
"We also need to build capacity to move forces from western sector to northern sectors", he said.
He said the Chinese had come with a large manpower and equipment. "We are capable of handling China's assertiveness along the border".
Asked about the Tuting road construction incident in which a Chinese team entered nearly 800 mt inside the Indian territory in Arunachal Pradesh, he said the intrusion appeared to be a case of a mistaken alignment (of a road) that was sorted out. "Troops are earmarked, and should a situation arise, our troops are ready to cater", he added.
On the question of whether China was supporting terrorists, Rawat said, "They are not supporting terrorist directly".
General Rawat also addressed the issue of terrorism emanating from Pakistan.
Referring to the U.S. warnings to Pakistan over its handling of terrorism, General Rawat said India will have to wait and see its impact. On Tuting incident in Arunachal Pradesh, where Chinese civilians transgressed into Indian border to construct road in the region, Gen Rawat said, "The Chinese felt that they have ingressed into the Indian territory".
The army chief also said some control has to be exercised over madrassas and mosques "that spread misinformation".
"I am sure that DRDO's long term perspective plan in conjunction and integrated perspective plan of the services must have encompassed the development of mitigation of technologies against such CBRN threats", he said.
