Lucknow, October 16: Home Minister Rajnath Singh said that India's borders are now completely safe and that China has begun to understand that India isn't weak anymore. Addressing people at a community organised programme in his Lok Sabha constituency, hit out at Pakistan for sending terrorists to India.
The union Home Minister said that under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, India has become a powerful country. He said, since the formation of Modi government at the Centre, India's prestige at the international level has grown.
He said that Pakistan is playing a dirty game by sending terrorists to India to destabalise our country. "But now this is a fact that our security forces are killing 2-4 terrorists per day. This has weakened terrorist network and we have been able to build confidence of people across Kashmir.
Notably, the Doklam standoff has certainly restricted and dented China’s image as a Bully, an expansionist who cannot be challenged nor controlled. China has blamed India for the whole mess accusing Indian troops to illegally crossing the Sino-Indian Seychelles section and bounded into China's Donglang area on June 18.
