India no more helpless before terror; will pay back for damage with ‘interest’: PM

Against the backdrop of the air strike on Jaish-e-Mohammad camp in Pakistan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday asserted that India is no more “helpless” before terrorism and will pay back for damage caused by terror acts with “interest”, a ANI report stated.

Addressing a rally here, he said the previous UPA government lacked courage to act even after several terror attacks took place across several cities between 2004 and 2014, including the major strike in Mumbai in 2008.

“India has been facing the menace of terrorism for years but there is a big difference now. India will no longer be helpless in the wake of terror,” Modi said.

“From 2004 to 2014, there were several terror attacks. There were blasts in Hyderabad, Jaipur, Delhi, Pune, Bengaluru and other places. It was expected that those responsible for these attacks would be punished but nothing happened,” Modi said. He said when people voted BJP to power with full majority in 2014, they wanted a strong government which could take “bold” and “decisive” decisions.

“Earlier, you would read that IAF wanted to carry out air strikes after the 2008 Mumbai attacks but it was not given permission. But today you read that security forces have been given a free hand to act,” he said.

“This is new India and this India pay back for damage caused in terror acts with interest,” the Prime Minister asserted. Modi said the events of the past few days have demonstrated, yet again, the strength of India’s armed forces. At the same time, he said a few Opposition parties have raised questions over the air strike.

“Sadly, a few political parties guided by Modi-hatred have started hating India. No wonder while the entire nation supports Armed forces, they suspect our armed forces. These are the same people whose statements are helping Pakistan and hurting India. Their statements are being happily quoted in the Parliament of Pakistan and in the radio of Pakistan,” Modi said.
