Chandigarh: Home Minister, Rajnath Singh on Tuesday hit out at Pakistan over the violation of ceasefire accord, despite giving the assurances not to do so, saying our decency and politeness should not be misinterpreted.
Home Minister Rajnath Singh was in Chandigarh to address the members of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha, accompanied by Chandigarh member of parliament Kirron Kher and Chandigarh Bharatiya Janata Party unit chief Sanjay Tandon.
Rajnath said, “Three-four days ago, Pakistan Rangers held a flag meeting with our Border Security Force Director-General, and assured that the ceasefire violation would not take place. But despite this, Pakistan has been violating ceasefire.”
We want to maintain good relations with our neighbors but our decency should not be wrongly interpreted, adding that we are no more a weak country, India is now a powerful country. Rajnath said.
“Not saying much, I just want to say our politeness and decency has a limit and we want to maintain good relations with all and also with our neighbors. But our decency should not be wrongly interpreted,” he said.
When asked about the case lodged against the army-men over the killing of two civilians in Kashmir on Saturday, Rajnath praised the army-men for their job.
“I can say that the situation in Jammu and Kashmir has turned far normal compared to what it was. Our security forces and Army personnel were working effectively. Jammu and Kashmir is ours, it will always be ours and people of Jammu and Kashmir are also ours,” he said.
Rajnath in reply to the question relating to 1984 anti-Sikh riots said the Supreme Court gave a verdict recently and SIT was being firmed to follow the order.
On 11th of January, the court had ordered to form a three-member special investigation team to oversee the further probe into 186 anti-Sikh cases which were closed.
Anti-Sikh riots or 1984 Sikh Massacre or Sikh genocide according to official reports claimed the lives of 2800 people including 2100 alone in Delhi and these riots had erupted after the assassination of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. ( PTI)
