Those who cast an evil eye on Ladakh have got befitting response: PM

New Delhi (IANS) Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that India has given a befitting reply to the Chinese transgression in Laddakh and the world has seen India's commitment to safeguarding its borders.
The Prime Minister in his monthly program in 'Mann kiBaat' said, "Those who cast an evil eye on the Indian soil in Ladakh have got a befitting response. India honours the spirit of friendship, but India is also capable of giving an appropriate response to any adversary, without shying away."
The Prime Minister said, "This period also saw the world realising India's spirit of universal brotherhood and at the same time it also noticed India's commitment and might when it comes to safeguarding her sovereignty and territorial integrity."
The Prime Minister said that our brave soldiers have proven that they will not let anyone cast an evil eye on the glory and honour of Mother India.
"World has seen India's commitment to protecting its border and sovereignty," said the Prime Minister.
The Prime Minister said that the world has seen India's strength and our commitment to peace and India bows to our brave martyrs. "They have always kept India safe. Their valour will always be remembered."
Prime Minister Modi in his ‘Mann kiBaat’ address said that the entire country comes together in paying tributes to the bravery of our jawans who attained martyrdom in Ladakh.
"The entire country bows to them in reverence, with gratitude. Just like their family members, every Indian painfully regrets the loss. The inner sense of pride that families feel on the supreme sacrifice of their brave sons and their sentiment for the country, constitutes the true power, the might of the country. "
He said that the "parents of the martyrs were sending other young members of their families to join the forces too." "This kind of emotion should be praised," said Modi.
