“Both equally India and China are eager that the problems are sorted through talks at navy and diplomatic ranges. I want to assure you that India’s countrywide pride will never be compromised. I want to assure our opposition events that they will not likely be kept in the dim and will be briefed when the time comes,” stated Rajnath Singh.
On the determination to abrogate Article 370, he claimed though earlier the Kashmir valley used to witness ISIS flags getting unfurled, the go by the BJP-led Centre has transformed the situation. He also condemned the senseless killing of Ajay Pandita, expressing It was a cowardly act.

The Minister also compensated tributes to Mohd Makbul Sherwani of Baramulla, who in 1947 hoisted the Indian flag in Kashmir valley.
The senior BJP chief took a swipe at Pakistan, declaring, “mausam badal chuka hai (the season has changed).”
“Our channels are broadcasting weather conditions forecasts of Muzaffarabad-Gilgit. Ye darja hararat batane ke karan, ab Islamabad mein bhi kuch hararat mehsus hone lagi hai (Islamabad as well is experience the warmth). That is why they are bent on doing much more mischiefs”.
Heading a step ahead, Singh claimed, “Soon persons of Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) will demand that they want to be with India and not underneath the rule of Pakistan. And the day it occurs, a purpose set by our Parliament will also be completed,” claimed Singh.
The BJP leader also referred to “potent India” although mentioning induction of Rafale plane into the Air Power. “India is shifting ahead in defence. The energy of our Air Force will boost following the induction of Rafale fighter jet. We do not want to frighten any one, but we want to raise our toughness to safeguard ourselves,” he explained.
