“From LoC To LAC, Fitting Reply”: PM Modi Taunts China, Pakistan

“Today the world stands with India and to get 184 votes out of 192 nations in the UN for a (non-permanent) seat at the UN Security Council is proof,” PM Modi said.

New Delhi| “From LoC to LAC”, India’s soldiers have given a fitting reply to anyone who has challenged the country’s sovereignty, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Saturday, addressing the nation on its 74th Independence Day.

“From LoC (Line of Control) to LAC (Line of Actual Control), whenever India’s sovereignty has been challenged, our soldiers have answered them in their own language,” PM Modi said, in a strong message to neighbouring China and Pakistan without naming the countries.

Mentioning the clash between Indian and Chinese troops in Galwan valley on 15 June, PM Modi said: “India’s integrity is supreme for us. What our jawans can do, what the country can do, the world saw that in Ladakh. Today, I salute all those brave soldiers from the Red Fort.”

The Prime minister also added that whether it is terrorism or expansionism, India is fighting both.

“Today the world stands with India and to get 184 votes out of 192 nations in the UN for a (non-permanent) seat at the UN Security Council is proof,” PM Modi said.

No olny focusing on the themes of “Aatma Nirbhar Bharat (self-reliant India)”, “Vocal for local” and “Make in India to Make for World” throughout his one-hour 26-minute speech, PM Modi also paid tribute to those on the frontlines of the fight against the coronavirus and declared that India had a roadmap ready for the production and distribution of three COVID-19 vaccines that are at various stages of testing.

PM also stressed that the neighbours are not only those that India shares a border with. He said that relations with neighbours depended on security, progress and trust.

“A neighbour isn’t just someone who shares our borders but those who share our hearts. Where the relationship is respected, it becomes warmer. Today, India has close relations in the greater neighbourhood. We are working together and have a lot of mutual respect for each other,” the Prime Minister added.
