New Delhi: Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman asserted Wednesday that India was fully ready to give a befitting reply to any attack and that the country was in safe hands.
She was responding to a question about Indian Air Force scrambling two Sukhoi-30 fighter jets on Monday after a Pakistani drone was sighted.
“I want to give this assurance that India and its forces are fully prepared and this is an example. We are ready to give a befitting reply to any attack like this. India is in safe hands,” she told reporters.
IAF had scrambled two Sukhoi-30 fighter jets after sighting a Pakistani drone along the Indo-Pak border in the Khemkaran sector in Punjab. The drone soon retreated to the Pakistani side.
