Strongly condemning the continued proxy war by Pakistan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said the neighbouring country has no strength to fight conventional war with India.

Addressing officers, soldiers and air warriors of the Indian Army and Air Force here today he condemned the continued proxy war by Pakistan.
‘The neighbouring country has lost the strength to fight a conventional war, but continued to engage in the proxy war of terrorism’. Mr Modi said the Indian Armed Forces have suffered more casualties because of terrorism than from wars. However, he said this is a global problem and all humanitarian forces of the world should unite to fight it. India is committed to strengthening and uniting these humanitarian forces.
The Prime Minister said India is committed to strong armed forces, well-equipped with modern arms and technology. He said that the jawans should be assured that the entire country supports them.
In an emotional vein, Mr Modi said soldiers remain undeterred in spite of the many negatives and struggles their families had to face in day-to-day life.
He said that this energy and sense of duty inspires him and therefore, he keeps visiting jawaans on the border to seek inspiration.
Mr Modi said that our armed forces deployed in border areas are well-connected with the local people of that area. He highlighted the example of the Kargil infiltrations, about which the first information was given to our armed forces by a shepherd named Tashi Namgyal.
