Singh said even as the district administration was making arrangements for shifting the residents of border villages to safer places, they say “they were ready to face any eventuality as long as it helps teach a lesson to Pakistan.”
He also said people in border areas had shown full faith in Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Invoking Mahatma Gandhi on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti Singh said, non-violence was not a virtue of the meek or weak also it does not imply succumbing to violence.
He also paid rich tributes to military and para-military personnel who lost their lives during the recent turmoil in Kashmir.
Singh also said the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti assumes special significance, as on this day, the entire nation is rededicating itself to “Swachh Bharat Abhiyan”, country-wide cleanliness drive initiated on the call of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The Union minister said inspired by the Modi’s call to build toilets for women, he decided to take up a project to get 1,200 toilets constructed in villages along International Border of Kathua district “and it is a matter of satisfaction that over 100 have already been complete by now”.
