India gives proper response to terrorist attacks, which was not the case during Congress-led PAU: Amit Shah
Speaking strongly against Pakistan over terrorism, Union Home Secretary Amit Shah said on Thursday that a surgical strike led by India five years ago sent a strong message to the world that no one can interfere with its borders.
He said that under the BJP-led NDA rule, India gives an appropriate response to terrorist attacks, which was not the case when the Congress-led UPA was in power.
Shah was addressing a rally after laying the foundation stone for the National University of Forensic Sciences in Dharbandora village in south Goa.
During the UPA rule, terrorists across the border would infiltrate India and cause unrest, and Delhi would do nothing, but now India is responding in the same language they (the terrorists) understand, he said.
Referring to the 2016 surgical strike, Shah said India, through military action, has sent a strong message to the world that no one can interfere with its borders. India led the surgical strike on September 29, 2016, through the Line of Control (LoC) in response to a terrorist attack on an army base in the Uri sector of Jammu and Kashmir.
Shah recalled the contribution of the pillar of the BJP, the late Manohar Parrikar, as Minister of Defense. Parrikar and Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be remembered for years for introducing a Tier One Pension (OROP) to the armed forces, the Home Secretary said.
“Parrikar will be remembered for introducing a tier one pension for the three wings of the armed forces under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” he said.
