Union home minister Amit Shah said that the Modi government will not tolerate anyone who breaches India’s territory. The move will be dealt with strongly, added the home minister. His statements come ahead of the anniversary of the Uri attack.
New Delhi: The nation stands united as September 18 marks the third anniversary of the Uri attack. 7 terror launch pads were destroyed during the surgical strike, 38 terrorists and 2 Pakistani soldiers were killed in the surgical strikes.
On Tuesday ahead of the third anniversary of the surgical strikes, union home minister Amit Shah said that the Modi government will not tolerate any breach of India''s territory and is ready to deal with any such acts strongly.
Shah also asserted that the situation in Jammu and Kashmir has been peaceful ever since the special status given to the state under Article 370 was abrogated on August 5 and added that not a single bullet has been fired nor has anyone died since then.
"There will be no compromise on India''s security. We will not tolerate even an inch of breach of our territory. We will deal with it strongly. We will not allow any drop of blood of our soldiers go in vain," he said addressing an event of the All India Management Association here.
Coming down heavily on the previous Congress regime for not adopting a comprehensive national security policy, the home minister said the country''s strategic policy was "eaten up" by the foreign policy.
"After the surgical strike and the air strike, the perception of the world has changed and India''s strength has been recognised globally," he said.
On September 29, 2016, the Army had carried out surgical strikes against terror launch pads across the Line of Control in PoK after terrorists attacked a brigade headquarters in Uri in Jammu and Kashmir.
The option of surgical strikes was taken in the wake of increase in infiltration bids , the DGMO informed. Terrorists had begun gathering in large numbers along the LoC with the objective of crossing the border and targeting locations in Jammu and Kashmir, as well as other metros. In such a scenario surgical strikes was considered the best option to deal with the threat.
