Surgical strike sent strong message to world on terror: Shah

>>>>>If PM Modi had not won majority in 2019, then abrogation of Article 370, Ram Mandir would not have been made possible


Panaji, Oct 14: Talking tough against Pakistan over terrorism, Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday said surgical strike carried out by India five years ago sent a strong message to the world that no one can interfere with its borders. He said under the BJP-led NDA rule, India gives a befitting reply to terrorist attacks which was not the case when the Congress-headed UPA was in power.
Shah was addressing a gathering after laying the foundation stone for the National Forensic Science University at Dharba-ndora village in South Goa. During the UPA government, terrorists from across the border used to infiltrate into India and cause unrest, and Delhi would do nothing, but now, India responds in the same language which they (terrorists) understand, he said.
Referring to the 2016 surgical strike, Shah said India, through the military action, sent across a strong message to the entire world that no one can interfere with its borders. India had conducted the surgical strike on September 29, 2016, across the Line of Control (LoC) as a response to a terrorist attack on an Army base in the Uri sector of Jammu and Kashmir.
Shah recalled the contribution of BJP stalwart late Manohar Parrikar as defence minister. Parrikar and Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be remembered for years for introducing One Rank One Pension (OROP) in the armed forces, the home minister said.
“Parrikar will be remembered for introducing One Rank One Pension for all the three wings of the armed forces under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi," he said.
Shah also said if Prime Minister NarendraModi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government had not won the 2019 LokSabha polls with the full majority then neither the construction of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya would have been started nor the Article 370 abrogated in Jammu and Kashmir.
Addressing BJP's KaryakartaSammelan here, Shah said, "We want to make a government with a full majority in Goa in 2022. Tell me, if Prime Minister Narendra Modi had not won with a majority, then could Ram Temple be built in Ayodhya, could Article 370 be abrogated in Jammu and Kashmir?"
"In all the political parties formed before and after independence, BJP is the only party whose's soul is not a leader but workers. One cannot imagine BJP without party workers," he added. The assembly elections in Goa are slated for early next year.
Amit Shah, who is on a day-long visit to poll-bound Goa on Thursday, inaugurated the transit campus of National Forensic Sciences University (NFSU) at Curti in Ponda, Goa. Shah also held meetings with party leaders.
