PM Narendra Modi on Monday reiterated his commitment towards national security.
Speaking in Ahmedabad in Gujarat to a huge gathering, he said:
"We are committed to safeguarding our nation. We have waged this war for national security, will do whatever is required," he said.
He also lamented the politicisation of India's war against terror by Opposition.
"You criticise me on my work. You can abuse me, but why do you want to abuse the Forces? Why do you want to bring their morale down?" he said.
He also attacked politicians from the Opposition parties who have questioned the action taken by the Indian Air Force against terror camps backed in Pakistan.
"Look at the misfortune of the country, I don't know what has happened to these people. Those who criticise our forces make headlines in Pakistan media. What kind of politicians are these people? They are being discussed in their Parliament. Is this good for the country? Will you speak in such a way that Pakistan will clap for you?" he asked.
"The Indian Forces have defeated them, they have shown courage. And I can't wait any longer. It is in my nature to make each one of them pay for every attack," he said.
Earlier on Monday, PM Modi inaugurated Phase- I of the Ahmedabad Metro. Later, PM took a ride on the Metro along with Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, Deputy Chief Minister Nitinbhai Patel and Union Minister of State for Housing & Urban Affairs, Hardeep Puri and young students.
PM’s recent ride comes close on the heels of him taking the Metro in Delhi on his way to the ISKCON Temple. The Prime Minister had visited the temple to unveil the world’s largest Bhagawad Gita on February 26.
PM Modi is currently on a two-day visit to the state, where he was born and brought up and served as Chief Minister for almost 13 years before becoming the PM. The PM had announced on Twitter about inaugurating the first phase of the Metro project. He had also announced about laying the foundation stone of the second phase.
