“Pakistan is fully capable of responding to any Indian aggression. We do not want to convert Border tension between two nuclear neighbors into confrontation. India should act in a responsible manner, as per reporters, said Pakistan’s Defence Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif.
India asserted that Pakistan will not be able to bear the cost of this “adventurism” if it persists with such “unprovoked” aggression.
Defence Minister Arun Jaitley told reporters that, “If Pakistan persists with this adventurism, our forces will make the cost of this adventurism unaffordable”.
Arun Jaitely added that, “Pakistan has to stop this unprovoked firing and shelling. As long as that continues how can there be peace.”
“Today, when bullets are being fired on the border, it is the enemy that is screaming. Our jawans have responded to the aggression with courage,” Modi said at an election rally at Baramati, the turf of NCP chief Sharad Pawar.
Modi added that, “The enemy has realized that times have changed and their old habits will not be tolerated”.
