Ghaziabad: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday warned terrorists targeting India that the country could not be suffering forever, speaking on the occasion of the 50th Raising Day of the CISF.

Referring to the terrorist attacks in Pulwama and Uri, he said, “Enough! We cannot suffer for eternity.”

As the chief guest of the 50th Raising Day function of the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), the Prime Minister said when the country was facing an inimical neighbour, conspiracy theories emanating from the country are being spread across the border.

The role of security forces like CISF in such a situation becomes very important, the Prime Minister said.

The Prime Minister said when neighbours are very hostile but do not have the ability to fight the war, when the conspiracies of hitting the country from across the border fail, they use terrorists to hurt India. “Ensuring the protection of the country and institutions (in such times) is very challenging,” Modi said, recognising the role of the CISF.

Referring to the airstrike on Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist camps, Modi said that sometimes the government has to take tough decisions.

Congratulating the CISF, the Prime Minister said it was easy to protect a person but difficult to protect a public place where about three million people come every day or eight lakh people travel daily. The context was CISF’s responsibility of protecting sensitive places like nuclear installations, airports, ports, powerhouses, government buildings, Delhi Metro stations.

Modi told the CISF jawans, “You are not merely standing at the gate (as a sentry), you are contributing to the development of the country.”

The Prime Minister said that the work of security personnel sometimes becomes difficult when he or other VIPs go on tour. Modi said that the ‘VIP culture’ sometimes interferes in the security preparedness.

The Prime Minister praised the participation of women in the force, saying, “It gives the CISF a new direction. I want to congratulate these daughters, their parents, especially those mothers who inspire their daughters to take responsibility for the country.”

Modi said that, since independence, about 35,000 police personnel have lost their lives while serving the country. These include 4,000 soldiers of security forces including CISF, CRPF and BSF.
