Our neighbours’ intentions will be given a befitting reply by the people of India. All major world powers are standing with us & supporting us. The messages I have received show that they are not only sad, they are angry too. Everyone is in favour of ending terrorism.
Our neighbouring country has forgotten that this is a new India. Pakistan is roaming around with its begging bowl but it’s not getting help from the world. -Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while laying the foundation stone of Defence Corridor in Jhansi
