Warning Pakistan once again for ‘disturbing peace and tranquillity in Jammu and Kashmir’, Home Minister Rajnath Singh today indicated that India would respond with unmeasured force if the neighbour fired even a single bullet.
“Pakistan is trying to disturb peace and tranquillity in Jammu and Kashmir time and again, but this practice will not continue for long,” the home minister was quoted as saying by news agency IANS, once again referring to his recent statement that the Modi government is working on permanent solution for the situation in Kashmir.
On the topic of cross-border aggression by Pakistan, Rajnath said that the Indian Army has been given the permission not to keep a record of bullets if Pakistani forces ‘fire one bullet’.
The home minister’s comments came during a public meeting in Hamirpur, Himachal Pradesh, where Rajnath was attending the Bharatiya Janata Party’s Tridev Sammelan aimed at strengthening and mobilising party cadres.
‘WILL UPROOT PAK-SPONSORED TERROR’
This is the second time in two days that the home minister has directly spoken about Pakistan-backed terrorism in Kashmir. During a press conference yesterday, he had said, “I assure you that we will uproot Pakistan-sponsored terror from Jammu and Kashmir and establish peace there”.
Rajnath’s comments today came two days after two Indian Army jawans were killed in an ambush my militants on the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway.
Recently, there have been a spate of ceasefire violations along the Line-of-Control, with Pakistan military just yesterday claiming to have killed five Indian jawans. The Indian Army, however, denied those claims.
