Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that India would give “prachand jawab” (fierce reply) if it was provoked.
While addressing the Indian Army troops at Longewala Post on the occasion of Diwali, Prime Minister Modi gave a stern message to the neighboring countries.
“No force in the world can stop our brave soldiers from protecting the country’s border,” he said.
“They can give a fierce reply if anybody tries to judge their capabilities,” said Modi.
The Prime Minister said, “The history of the world tells us that only those nations have remained safe, only those nations have moved forward, which had the ability to fight the invaders.”
“No matter how far international cooperation has come, the equations may have changed, but we can never forget that vigilance is the way to safety, awareness is the support of happiness,” he added.
Modi made it clear that India’s current strategy believed in the policy of understanding and explaining.
“Today, India’s strategy is clear. Today’s India believes in the policy of understanding and explaining, but if anybody tries to judge our capabilities, we equally give a fierce answer,” Modi said
He added that the world was knowing this fact very well in the current scenario that India was not going to “compromise its interests even at any cost”.
“This status of India, this stature is due to your (Indian Army) power and your might. You have secured the country, that’s why India today speaks vigorously on the global forums,” Modi said.
