Amaravati: Provision of death penalty for rape of girl child below 12 years is a landmark move in ensuring safety of women, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on on Wednesday.
Modi said his government was committed to ensuring all-round security of its citizens, including financial and health security.
Noting that terrorism plagued India for 40 years, the prime minister said the surgical strike against terror launch pads across the LoC was an example of its determination to tackle the menace.
“Earlier the global community used to say Kashmir…
Kashmir…Kashmir. Now they are saying terrorism. We want peace but know how to deal with terrorism in the language they understand. Surgical strike is an example of that,” he said.
He was interacting with BJP workers of Andhra Pradesh as part of ‘Mera booth sabse mazboot’ outreach programme to strengthen the party organisation ahead of Lok Sabha elections due next year.
