In an exclusive interview with ANI, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh has warned Pakistan that India has the capability to strike across the Line of Control if terror camps continue to operate. He also said that Pakistan has been indulging in notorious actions along the border since its creation. Around 300-400 ceasefire violations were reported from Pakistan’s side in the past few months, mentioned Singh. The minister appreciated the Indian army’s commitment to wiping out terrorism from Jammu and Kashmir.
“The country’s soldiers have proved that not only this side, but to eliminate terrorism they can go to the other side and attack terrorist hideouts if the need arises. India has that capability, that power”, said Rajnath Singh. India had carried out a surgical strike deep inside the Pakistani territory in 2016, where training camps for terrorists were operating. In 2019, aerial strikes were carried out in terror camps in Balakot.
The minister had slammed Pakistan during the graduation parade at Airforce Academy in Dundigal earlier this month and said that the neighbouring country has continued with its “nefarious acts” on the border, even after losing four wars.
