Indian Army had given a befitting reply and will keep giving reply to Pakistan on attempts to infiltrate. Such actions would continue if the neighbouring country did not stop infiltration, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said on Monday.
“However, our neighbour Pakistan…. Our armed forces have never been on the offensive on the Pakistani side. We have never done the first firing. “But attempts have been made from the other side to destabilise, weaken and compromise the integrity of India,” he said.The Indian armed forces had given a “befitting reply” to them”, Rajnath Singh said.
India will take stronger action than Sunday’s attacks on terror camps in Pakistan if it does not end terror activities directed towards India, he added.
The statement came out at a function in Leh for the inauguration of the 1,400-ft Col Chewang Rinchen bridge in eastern Ladakh over Shyok River, the highest-altitude permanent bridge in the country.
His statement came a day after Army chief General Bipin Rawat said that three terror camps have been destroyed by Indian Army in retaliation to unprovoked ceasefire violation from the Pakistani side at Tangadhar sector of Jammu and Kashmir.
On the other hand, kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik also warned that the army will keep on going deep without stopping and destroy terrorist camps. “Pakistan will have to behave and stop these terror camps. If it does not behave, we will go deep inside and destroy these camps,” he said.
