The statement demonstrates the following
1.Intent to do an act
2.Espousing the intent in a public forum
3.Declaring military capability n capacity to see through the act
4.Converting the intent to a policy

This statement is a huge shift in policy...has high import in scheme of geostrategic game...this statement will not be taken light due to wat it implies....it tells we know exactly where paki nuclear materials/delivery systems are stored , in wat readiness...it tells dat we have war gamed this scenario with built in contingency...

Now Pakistan s left with only economically crippling n time intensive option of recreating a new set of secure facilities for its nukes n it's delivery platforms.

I usually appreciate other morale boosting statements even if they might affect the surprise element , but this should have been kept a surprise.

Much like the time when our Hon'ble PM Morarji Desai showed bravado to the Pakistani PM , revealing our vast intelligence setup in Pakistan and resulted in it being dismantled

However this comment coming from someone in the military estabilishment either means such concerns are taken into consideration or it could be a bluff

Good, start by hitting the hideouts of Hafiz saeed in Punjab and Bahawalpur hideout of Azhar Masoud. Both are our legitimate targets and internationally recognized terrorists.

Army Chief had also reiterated a number of times that Surgical strikes into neighbouring countries can happen anytime as per situation. We did twice in Myanmar and once in PoK. That means these were not hollow claims. Similarly Air Chief giving such statement means some scenarios have been planned. Modi is implementing Offensive Defence in its true form. Raising the cost of asymetric warfare of the adversary. After land attack this is second level of escalation. Which means we have developed many more options of hitting Pak without calling for an all out war. No element of surprise is lost as the nuke sites are static and cannot be shifted or hidden away. They are visible to our recon satelites and defence planners know where to hit. Now Pakis will be scared twice. The punch can come via land or via air too. Waiting for navy chief to issue a warning that naval assets and ports can also be targeted in case Pak does not behave. Thrice the fun. Same price.

The title of the video is misleading. The ACM did not talk about a nuclear strike. He talked about strikes on Pakistan's nuclear sites. In any case, there could be radiation leak.

It would have be nice if India had demonstrated capabilities and a large arsenal of cruise missiles.

most indian soldiers come from the north. why would you project military power for upcoming gujarat election, which is a state involved more in business than military affairs?
