NEW DELHI: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the opposition Congress slammed Pakistan’s army chief General Raheel Sharif for his comments.

General Sharif had reportedly described Kashmir as the “unfinished agenda of the Partition” and threatened an “unbearable cost” of a “short or long” war.

He was said to be responding to Indian army chief General Dalbir Singh’s remarks to the effect that India was prepared for swift, short nature of future wars.

“Let me reiterate that our armed forces stand fully capable to defeat all sorts of external aggression,” Gen Sharif said.

The BJP and Congress criticised Gen Sharif’s remarks.BJP secretary Shrikant Sharma reportedly called it an “empty boast” and said that his provocative comments were driven by desperation over Pakistan’s internal crisis as well as “exposure” of its role in sponsoring terrorism in India.

“If still the Pakistan Army chief wishes to daydream, it just goes to show Pakistan’s immaturity in dealing with India,” BJP leader Sidharth Nath Singh said.

Terming his remarks as “belligerent and irrational”, Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi said the only unfinished agenda before the world was to ensure that Pakistan ceases to be a safe harbour for global terrorists.

Both countries look primed to frontally attack each other at the UN General Assembly. India will emphasise terrorism as an issue with Pakistan, while Pakistan is said to be preparing to show India’s alleged violations of the ceasefire agreement between the two countries. Pakistan is also hoping to highlight the human rights situation in Indian-occupied Jammu and Kashmir. India could counter it by pointing to the court martial and imprisonment of soldiers and officers in a fake encounter case in Machil.
