Press Trust of India  |  Bengaluru 

Union Home Minister today said Indian soldiers along the Indo-border had been gunning down at least five-six terrorists every day and that he had told them to give a fitting reply if opened fire.

He said the neighbouring country had been sending terrorists to with nefarious designs and the Indian soldiers had been gunning down at least five-six of them every day.

Singh said he had ordered the soldiers not to fire at their Pakistani counterparts first, but give a fitting reply by "firing countless bullets" if opened fire.

"I have told my soldiers deployed at the border not to fire first at Pakistan, but give a fitting reply by firing countless bullets if they fire first," he said.

On the Dokalam issue, he said was not a weak country anymore, but a strong one, which was in a position to resolve the contentious matter with its neighbour

"is no more a weak nation, but a strong country. You ought to know how India resolved the Dokalam issue with China, especially when most people across the globe were anticipating an India-conflict," the home minister said.

"If India was a weak country, it could not have been in a position to resolve the Dokalam issue with China," he added.
