Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday said not a single major terror attack has taken place in the country ever since Prime Minister Narendra Modi assumed office in 2014. He also said that terrorists were scared of the BJP government at the Centre.
Singh, who was addressing Gujarat BJP leaders on the second day of the party's three-day state executive meeting at Kevadia in Narmada district, slammed the Congress saying the party was not sensitive enough towards the Army jawans as it kept the issue of One Rank-One Pension (OROP) unresolved for 40 years.
"No matter what it takes, we will not let terrorists succeed. Forget about Jammu and Kashmir, no major terrorist attack took place in any part of the country after the arrival of Modiji. This is our major achievement. It seems that terrorists are now scared of the BJP government. This is not a small thing," he said.
"Terrorists now realise that they are not secure even in their safe havens. What we did (surgical strike in PoK) after the Uri attack gave a clear message to the world that we can kill terrorists on this side as well as by crossing the border if need arises," Singh added.
Slamming the previous Congress government on the issue of OROP, the minister said, "But, Modiji implemented it immediately. This shows the difference between a Congress government and a BJP government," he said.
