NEW DELHI: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday said that the government will do everything possible to prevent cross border terrorism.
Singh, who was making a statement in the Lok Sabha on Monday’s attack in Punjab’s border district of Gurdaspur, said any effort by the enemies to undermine India's territorial integrity and security or imperil the safety and security of our citizens will meet an effective and forceful response from the security forces.
The Home Minister emphasized that the government has been and will remain resolute in this regard.
He assured the House that the government is firm to root out terrorism from India.
Giving details of the attack, Singh said preliminary analyses of GPS data indicates that the terrorists had infiltrated from Pakistan through the area near Tash in Gurdaspur district, where the Ravi river enters Pakistan.
The Home Minister later told the media outside the Parliament that the government has accepted the challenge of terrorism and will win over it.
“We have accepted the challenge of terrorism. We will win over it,” he said.
