If enemy fires one bullet, we will fire four: CM Devendra Fadnavis

Continuing to harp on national security, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Thursday said “if they (enemies) fire one bullet, it would be retaliated with four bullets”.

“Today, we are living in a New India under Prime Minister Narendra Modi. There is no question of weakness or vulnerability,” he said, addressing a rally at Bhiwandi in Thane.

“This election is not about getting a political party, BJP or NDA, elected. What is most significant is, to elect a leadership that can stand firm when it comes to tackling national security. In Modi, we have the leadership that has brought India on par with the US and Israel when it comes to tackling national security and safeguarding our soldiers.”
