In a veiled reference to Pakistan, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh Saturday said a neighbouring country is trying to destabilise India by encouraging “cowardly” act of terrorism but our government will never let the nation to bow down its head before anyone. “A neighbouring country of our again and again encourages terrorism and terrorist activities to harm India. Perhaps it was not able to understand the fact that terrorism is not a weapon of the brave but of cowards,” Singh said at the concluding ceremony of Chhattisgarh Rajyotsav – the 16th foundation day celebrations at Naya Raipur.

Further referring to surgical strike by Army after the Uri attack, he said, “You have seen how they cowardly attacked our jawans but after that our jawans did a wonderful job. I want to assure that this government will never let India to bow its head before anyone”.

Singh also said unable to stomach India’s rapid growth, some countries are trying to destabilise the nation.

“Today, India is progressing rapidly. It is the country which has highest economic growth rate in the world presently. Some countries (anti-India) are jealous of us and trying to destabilise (the country). They are trying to weaken India. But I assure you that under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi no power could weaken India,” he said.

Singh further re-affirmed his commitment to extend every possible support to Chhattisgarh in its fight against Naxalism.

“Development is taking place rapidly in Chhattisgarh but the Maoist activities has been a matter of concern for all of us.

“The ruling BJP government in the state has accepted the challenge and it will definitely achieve success (in combat against Naxalism). Centre will provide all kind of support to the state in tackling the menace,” he said.

Maoists never wanted roads to be built in the remote villages, good education for children, better communication system, good jobs for youth, the Minister said.

“I have already said to Maoist to stop their activities for some time and then government will show them what is development and how it takes place.”

“China was a huge supporter of Maoism but now there is no place for it (Maoism) in its their future. But here (in India) there are attempts going on to encourage Maoism,” Singh said while warning Naxals, “You must leave it (Maoism) or you will have to”.

The Minister said India is poised to emerge as a global economic power and the efforts initiated by the Narendra Modi government will start bearing positive results in the days to come.

He, however said Centre not only wanted to make India a global economic power but also a ‘Vishaw Guru’ (world-teacher).

Singh praised Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh for carrying out development oriented works in the state.

Meanwhile, 18 people and two organisations were also felicitated with state awards on the occasion for their contribution in different fields.

Raman Singh and his Cabinet colleagues were present for the concluding ceremony.

    UPA Governments, during 2005-14, ordered several TV channels to go off air in 21 instances, for a period ranginglt;br/gt;from one day to two months for showing obscene visuals including 13 cases of telecasting ‘Adult’ rated certified films.lt;br/gt;One channel was taken off air for 30 days for telecasting a sting operation, he said. “People of the country are also wise enough to appreciate which of the two violations – showing obscene visuals at the stroke of midnight and risking the lives of defence personnel and civilians through a live telecast of anti-terrorist operations in broad daylight- is a serious threat to the interests of the nation including its sovereignty, integrity and security,”
