Amid the continuing ceasefire violations by Pakistani troops along LoC, Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday assured the nation that security forces were giving “befitting reply” to firing from across border and that the country will not bow down before anyone. “I want to assure the nation that the security forces are giving befitting reply to the firing from Pakistan. We will not bow down before anyone,” he told reporters in New Delhi.

Watch what else is making news:

Singh said if countrymen were celebrating Diwali, it was because of the security personnel guarding the borders. The Home Minister said people must have faith in security forces who are foiling the evil designs of enemies.

Terrorists, aided by the cover fire by Pakistani Army, last night crossed the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir and killed an Indian Army jawan and mutilated his body, prompting the Army to warn that the “incident will be responded to appropriately.”

Four Army and three BSF personnel have died in the latest escalation along the boundary with Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir. Pakistan Rangers also violated ceasefire in RS Pura and Kathua sectors along International Border on Saturday.

They are going after this terrorist and finishing them once for all.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;This BJP ministers live spacious bungalows , travel in special aircraft, stay in 5 star hotels and give media statements every day just to win votes in elections.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Every Indian wants stern and real action against the terror camps in stan.

            Please don't allow them to sleep, Please rain bullet aiming at civilian also, then only they will become panic. If we solely aim at their force, that is not sufficient because they will hide to avoid hitting bullet.
