Balakot airstrike anniversary | Our armed forces now don’t hesitate to cross border to protect country: Rajnath Singh

Marking the first anniversary of the Balakot air strike, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on February 26 said that India's approach in dealing with terrorism has undergone a major change as its armed forces now do not hesitate to cross the border to protect the country against the menace.

In a series of tweets, Singh said: “India today celebrates the first anniversary of Balakote airstrikes. It was a successful counter terror operation launched by the fearless @IAF_MCC air warriors. With the success of Balakote air strikes India has clearly demonstrated its strong will against terrorism.”

“I salute the @IAF_MCC for its unmatched bravery and courage exhibited during Balakote air strikes. Our government led by PM Shri @narendramodi has adopted a different approach from earlier governments. Now we do not hesitate to cross the border to protect India against terrorism,” he said.
