Rajnath Singh says India won't hesitate to cross border and attack enemies

As firing along the Line of Control and international border with Pakistan continues, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today said India has shown it can attack its enemies not only on its soil, but also in a foreign territory, if need be.

At least 11 people have lost their lives in the firing from Pakistani side since Thursday. Over 40,000 residents of Arnia and other areas along the LoC and border in Jammu and Kashmir have abandoned their homes to escape heavy shelling from Pakistan.

Rajnath Singh's remarks is also being viewed in the backdrop of a cross-border operation by the Indian forces about a month ago. A group of five Army commandos had crossed the Line of Control in Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir and killed three Pakistani soldiers and smashed a post, in a swift and daring operation.

The operation was seen as avenging the killing of four Indian Army personnel by a Border Action Team of the Pakistan Army in Keri sector Rajouri district.

"A few months ago, Pakistan, in an act of cowardice, attacked and martyred 17 of our jawans. Prime Minister Narendra Modi consulted all of us on this serious issue, and the Indian Army entered the Pakistani area and killed the militants," Rajnath Singh said at a public meeting in Lucknow.

"India's image in the world has become that of a strong nation and we have given a strong message to the world that we can attack our enemies not only on our soil, but also in their territory. India has developed this power," he said.

Rajnath Singh said India wants to maintain a friendly relationship with Pakistan. "But Pakistan is not mending its ways," Singh said.

"I want to assure you that our government will not let India to bow its head," he said.

The home minister said that under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the country's economy is moving ahead at a fast pace.

"...now even the global economists and experts accept this," he said, adding that India's prestige in the global arena "is rising rapidly". He was addressing a meeting of Bharatiya Railway Maal Godaam Shramik Sangh in the Uttar Pradesh capital.

"The railway maal godaam shramik have, for the past few generations, been sweating and giving the Railways a good income. However, despite this, they do not have any identification card, nor do they get any treatment facility in any of the Railway hospitals," said Rajnath.

He said he would take up the issues and problems of the labourers in the railway sector with their representatives and the railway minister.
