New Delhi: Addressing ‘Kargil Parakram Parade’ in New Delhi, National Democratic Alliance (NDA) Vice-Presidential nominee M. Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday hit out at Pakistan and asked Islamabad to recall the 1971 war.
Naidu stated that terrorism is the enemy of humanity, it has no religion and “it has unfortunately become Pakistan’s state policy”. “Our neighbour should understand that aiding and abetting terror will not help them, they should recall what happened in 1971 and should focus on their own country and maintain peace there. Terrorism is the enemy of humanity, it has no religion. Pakistan is mixing terrorism with religion. It has unfortunately become Pakistan’s state policy,” he added.
He further said that Kashmir is an integral part of India and not an “inch” of it will be allowed to be taken. “We are a peace loving people, we never attacked any country and this is our specialty. We don’t want war, we don’t want confrontation, we don’t want violence we want to have peace, we also want to have good relation with the neighbours but they should also reciprocate the same. They should remember that Kashmir is an integral part of India and not an inch of even PoK will be allowed to be taken by anybody,” he said.
He also squarely blamed Pakistan for funding and influencing the situation in Kashmir.
“Ours is a peace loving country. We never want war. But when this highly coveted peace is denied to us, our brave soldiers respond in a befitting manner. We are too strong to lose our focus to country’s development and betterment of the country,” he said. (Agencies)
