Home Minister Rajnath Singh Monday said that Indian soldiers along the India-Pakistan border had been killing at least five-six militants every day.
Singh said yesterday 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 opened fire.
On the Dokalam issue, he 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 globe were anticipating an India-China conflict,” the home minister said.
“If India was a weak country, it could not have been in a position to resolve the Dokalam issue with China,” he added.
Indian and Chinese soldiers had engaged in standoff in Dokalam in Sikkim sector for more than two months earlier this year.
The standoff was lated resolved through diplomatic negotiations.
