NEW DELHI — It is necessary to ensure that nothing is done to dent the morale of the security forces, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Thursday, a day after Pakistani fighter jets violated Indian air space in response to Indian forces targeting a JeM terror camp in its territory.
Modi also said India will fight, live, work and win as one and nobody can create hurdles in its march towards development.
“The enemy is trying to destabilise us, carry out terror strikes... they want to stop our growth... we will fight, live, work and win as one,” he said.
He was interacting with about one crore BJP workers in 15,000 locations through what the party said was the “world’s largest video conference”.
Modi said in his address that the 2014 election was a mandate for fulfilling people’s necessities and the 2019 polls will be about fulfilling people’s aspirations.
Indians have to be hard working in all spheres and should be grateful to all those who are protecting the country, the prime minister said.
Some people, for their selfish interests, dislike a strong government, he said. BJP workers need to tell people the benefits of a strong government, he added.
An IAF pilot was captured by Pakistan after an air combat Wednesday. Both sides said they shot down each other’s warplanes.
