Referring to the attack in Pampore in which eight jawans were killed, the Union home minister came out strongly against Pakistan said the neighbouring country has been trying to destabilise India.
In the light of terror Rajnath Singh stated India will not count bullets while retaliating, Rajnath said, “We will make sure not to fire the first bullet, but even if one bullet is fired from their [Pakistan’s] side, we shouldn’t even think about keeping a count on the bullets that we’ll fire,” , adding that he had given the orders after Pakistani Rangers killed five Indians a year and a half ago.
His statement came a day after Lashkar-e-Taiba militants opened fire at a Central Reserve Police Force convoy, killing eight jawans and injuring more than 20 others, in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pampore town on the outskirts of Srinagar.
Without naming Pakistan, the Union minister said, “An attempt is being made by these terrorists and our neighbouring country to destabilise India. I call upon Indian youth to stand up to face such forces, and we should greet and welcome the bravery of our security people and the way they are working with such valour and courage,” Singh said, adding that the Centre sent a committee to Pampore to look into any lapses in the handling of the terror attack that left eight CRPF personnel dead.
