Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday said that theModi government will not compromise on India's security and the recent IndianAir Force (IAF) air strikes in Pakistan were a testimony of its commitment tothe country.
"We will not let the sacrifice of its 40 martyrs go invain. We won't forgive anyone who tries to destabilise India. Our PrimeMinister has recently said that we are going to destroy the terrorists' campsas and when necessary," Singh said addressing a rally in Assam's Dhubridistrict.
"Security is the top priority of our government. Ifthere is no security, there cannot be development. Since our government came topower, there is a visible change in the country's security scenario,particularly in India's Northeast," said Singh.
"Our government is firm. We are not going to compromiseon the security of the country. We are not worried if our government stays ornot, the country must be secure," he said.
Attacking the Opposition for questioning the number ofcasualties in the IAF bombings in Balakot, Singh said: "This is not theway to do politics. They are asking our forces how many terrorist were killedin the IAF strikes. The National Technical Research Organisation (NTRO) hassaid that 300 mobile phones were active in the area when the strikes werecarried out. Now count for yourself whether the users of those phones werehumans, trees or plants."
