Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat asserted that as Jammu and Kashmir became a Union Territory, it will be easier to monitor activities in the region. "In the Kashmir valley, everybody is working together, Army does not work in isolation. Army is working along with the other central police forces that are there, the state police forces. Now if you see the BDC and Sarpanch elections have been held. So, we are working with everybody together," General Rawat told the media. "Now what will happen is the monitoring of activities I am sure will be carried out in a better manner because they have come directly under the Centre becoming a Union Territory," he added. The Army Chief on November 05 met a group of maulvis, granthis and pundits from Rajouri and Reasi region as part of a national integration tour.
