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.
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.
