Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday addressed a public meeting in Assam's Dhubri district. 

He spoke after inaugurating the advanced electronic surveillance system along the 61-km India-Bangladesh border in the district.

During the address, he said that the number of terrorists killed in the air strike by IAF on the training camp of Jaish-e-Mohammed in Pakistan's Balakot would be known "today or tomorrow".

He claimed that the National Technical Research Organisation (NTRO) system had informed about the presence of around 300 active mobile phones at the site before the air strike by India. Charging the opposition of doing politics over the strike, the Home Minister suggested the Congress to go to Pakistan and count the bodies if they want to know how many terrorists were killed.

He also said that though Pakistan had been denying that though terrorists in the camp, it knows about the impact of the IAF operation. "Pakistan's heart knows how many terrorists have been killed," he said.

Attacking Pakistan for its continued denial of IAF striking terror camps and killing the terrorists, he said,

"Did the signals from 300 mobile phones picked up by NTRO belonged to the trees?" 

He also said that the government will not spare the terrorists."PM Modi said that he will go to the seventh rung of hell and catch them," the Union Minister said.

Slamming the Opposition which has questioned the Forces' operation on Pakistan terror camps, he said, "Politics should not be done for power but to build the nation."

The Home Minister also said that Assam CM Sarbanand Sonowal and himself cannot be accused of corruption. "The Opposition can criticise us for anything but they cannot accuse the CM and I of Corruption," he said.

He also spoke about India's increasing economic might under Modi government, "India was the 10th largest economy in the world, today it is the 6th largest economy in the world. India will climb one more rank and reach 5th position soon... In nine years, it will be ranked among the top three countries with the largest economies"
