Infiltration bids have come down after surgical strikes, says Rajnath Singh
Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday claimed infiltration bids by terrorists have fallen after the Army carried out surgical strikes across the Line of Control in Pakistan to wipe out terror-launch pads.
"There is a shortfall in infiltration after the surgical strikes," Rajnath Singh said here at the Border Security Force's (BSF) investiture ceremony.
In 2016, the Army had conducted surgical strikes to destroy terror-launch pads across the Line of Control in Pakistan that resulted in the killing of dozens of militants and their sympathisers in September.
Singh further said that no compromise would be tolerated with respect to national respect.
“No compromise with national respect. Earlier, there used to be more infiltration from Pakistan but now after surgical strike it has been reduced,” Singh said while attending a Border Security Force (BSF) investiture ceremony here.
Singh also asserted that the government is moving forward on integrating border guarding force, intelligence network and police presence.
"A three-tier security system should be on border, we are moving fast towards integrating border guarding force, intelligence network and police presence," he added.
Singh appealed to all the jawans and officials not to follow or share social media messages directly on WhatsApp and Facebook unless its authenticity is known.
"The enemies try to spread rumours through social media, have seen sometimes our jawans and official forward them directly on WhatsApp and Facebook. I appealed that at least it shouldn't be forwarded, in any case till its authentic and in nation's interest," he added.
