Indian Soldiers Killing Five To Six Terrorists Every Day, Says Rajnath Singh

Home Minister Rajnath Singh said Indian soldiers were killing 5 to 6 terrorists on a daily basis


Bengaluru:  Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has said that Indian soldiers have been neutralising at least five to six terrorists every day, and that he has asked them to give a fitting reply if Pakistan opened fire on them.

Mr Singh said yesterday that he had ordered Indian soldiers not to fire at their Pakistani counterparts first, but give them a fitting reply by "firing countless bullets" if Pakistan dared to open fire.

Speaking about the Dokalam issue, Mr Singh said India was not a weak country anymore, but a strong one, and was in a position to resolve the contentious matter with its neighbour China.

"India is no more a weak nation, but a strong country. You ought to know how India resolved the Dokalam issue with China, especially when most people across the world were anticipating an India-China conflict," the home minister said.

"If India was a weak country, it could not have been in a position to resolve the Doklam issue with China," he added.

Indian and Chinese soldiers were engaged in a standoff in Doklam in Sikkim sector for more than two months earlier this year after Chinese troops tried to build a road in the disputed area claimed by India's ally Bhutan.

The standoff was lated resolved through diplomatic negotiations.
