Union minister Hardeep Singh Puri has accused the Congress-led UPA dispensation with being "shy" in giving a befitting reply to Pakistan and asserted the Modi government has reversed this tendency.
Mr Puri mentioned about the safe return of Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman and said, "The previous UPA government was shy to take on Pakistan, saying that both are nuclear-powered nations and any conflict will be dangerous. But the Modi government does not feel so and India retaliated (for) the terror attack in Pulwama boldly."
He made the comments while releasing the book "Antar Pravah" authored by Suman Devi at the event organised by CMS Inter College, where its founder Jagdish Gandhi was present.
Mr Puri suggested that Suman Devi should write 30 more books and wished her all success in her future endeavours.
