While addressing the ex-servicemen on the occasion of Veteran’s day in Bengaluru, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh warned the volatile neighbours Pakistan and China that India has the will power and capability to handle the adversaries if provoked. The defence minister recalled the might of the Forces while remembering the surgical strike when the Forces entered the enemy territory and neutralised the terrorists.
“Eastern front, or western front, on both fronts our jawans are battling the enemies. They have also been inside the enemy territory before to battle the terrorists,” the defence minister said.
India wants peace, harmony and friendship because it is in our blood, it is in our culture. India has the motto of “Vasudeva Kutumbakham”, i.e “Whole world is our family”, he said. “We do not want to hurt anyone but if someone meddles with our sovereignty, we have the capability to handle it,” he said in his address, pointing out to Pakistan and China.
“I want to speak with confidence, on Indo-china stand-off, our soldiers have displayed “shaurya, parakaram and dhairya”. It is unprecedented the way forces handled it. I won’t go much in details but if people of the nation knew, it will fill them with pride,” he said while speaking on the Galwan valley clash of 2020 when the Indian Army foiled the Chinese PLA’s attempt to unilaterally change the status quo on the LAC in eastern Ladakh.
