PM Modi said that, “We have responded with courage to the ceasefire violations.” He then said, in a reprimand to his political opponents, “Issues like ceasefire violations should not be a matter of debate for political gains.”
Opposition parties accused him for not paying enough attention to the fighting that has erupted on the Kashmir border.
Eight civilians have been killed as Pakistan has attacked Indian army with heavy mortar fire along the border in Kashmir while Pakistan claims that it has lost nine civilians.
Modi said to the reporters that, “Everything will be fine soon”.
Defence and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said that, “If Pakistan persists with this adventurism; our forces will make cost of this adventurism unaffordable for it”.
