India fighting decisive battle to eliminate cross-border terrorism: Amit Shah
NEW DELHI: Union Minister for Home Affairs Amit Shah today said India is fighting a decisive battle to eliminate cross border terrorism in India, once and for all.
He described terrorism as a curse for any modern developed society and a roadblock for the growth.
“Terrorism is a curse for any modern developed society and is a roadblock for the growth and development of the people. India has been fighting the longest battle in the world against cross border terrorism,” home minister said.
He was addressing the 35th Raising Day Ceremony of National Security Guard (NSG), at NSG HQ in Manesar, Gurugram today.
He said that Modi government’s policy of ‘zero tolerance against terrorism’ is unchangeable and a force like NSG is fully capable and equipped to safeguard the Nation from terrorism, upholding this policy of the government.
Shah added the Modi government had taken a bold decision to abrogate Article 370 for establishing a lasting peace in Kashmir.
He expressed confidence that NSG would always remain committed towards the Modi Government’s vision of a ‘World class Zero-Error force’ and would play a decisive role in eliminating terrorism in India.
The home minister said in today’s time when unconventional warfare is the rule, NSG is always prepared and ready to protect the Nation, whether it is in terror attacks like Akshardham, 26/11, Pathankot airbase or any other anti-hijack, bomb diffusion operations.
He said that NSG has impressed the world with its capability to counter any terror attack possible today. This inspires confidence in the minds of the people of the country that they are in safe hands, he added.
On this occasion, Shah also presented medals for gallantry and exemplary service to NSG commandos and their family members.
