Nizamabad: BJP president Amit Shah said on Wednesday that Pakistan has been forced to take action against the terrorists it surreptitiously sponsors because it has now realised that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given India’s security forces a free hand to respond to Pakistani terrorists.

In a meeting of BJP office bearers of five Lok Sabha constituencies under the Nizamabad area, Shah said that heads of Indian soldiers would be despatched from Pakistan under the UPA regime but no such answer was given to such barbaric acts.

Shah said that after the Uri terror attack the Modi government responded with a surgical strike.

The BJP president said that, similarly, after the Pulwama incident, Indian Air Force carried out air raids on terrorist camps in Pakistan’s Balakot.

The BJP chief said, “The IAF conducted air strikes on three terrorist camps and devastated them.”

The BJP chief said on the occasion, “Today Pakistan has realised for the first time that terrorism will not work… they are forced to arrest terrorists and stop terrorism… due to the political will of our leader Narendra Modi, this has happened.”

The BJP president said that Prime Minister Modi had given complete freedom to the defence forces. If they fire bullets, we will fire mortars. Int ka jawaab patthar se diya jaayega (we will give more than a befitting reply).”

Shah claimed that the Congress and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, BSP chief Mayawati, TDP supremo and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu et al should be ashamed that they are questioning the bravery of the soldiers and demanding proof of the air strikes.

The BJP president said Pakistan, in turn, is citing the statements made by India’s opposition heads to make its case against India.
