“Pakistan is making every effort to destabilize the peace in India, but we have sent them a clear message that we will fight back. This is a new and powerful India, ”said the Defense Minister.
India wants good relations with its neighbors and has never attacked a country or seen foreign territory.
“Having good relationships with neighbors is part of India’s culture, but some people don’t understand it. I don’t know if it’s her habit or her temper, ”he said.
In a veiled reference to China, Singh said India has another neighbor who doesn’t seem to understand.
Singh said he had to make it clear that if any country in the world tries to “occupy even an inch of our land” India will provide an appropriate response.
Noting that everyone was aware of India’s decisive 1971 victory, Singh warned India’s neighbors not to be deluded.
The Defense Minister also said there was an attempt to create misunderstandings in Nepal about a road he recently inaugurated from Lipulekh Pass to Mansarovar through Dharchula.
“But it hasn’t affected our close cultural ties with Nepal,” he said.
This is the second time this week Rajnath has sent a tough message to China.
