Rajnath Singh, the Union Home Minister, stated it on Monday that he hopes the newly formed government in Pakistan will introduce positive changes in its approach so as to make peace with the neighbours.
Making an address at the media at the headquarters of the BSF in the Paloura area of Jammu, he said, “Pakistan has its own nature and we cannot change their nature. They will have to do it.
“Whatever initiatives India could take, we have taken. The Prime Minister broke protocol to visit Pakistan. I pray to God the new government in Pakistan understands how good relations are built with neighbours.”
Rajnath Singh further said that the nation was facing certain challenges.
“Whether it is the Naxal violence or terrorism in J&K, our security forces are dealing with this effectively. The Army, CRPF and state police are working in absolute coordination.”
Responding to a question on the boycott of panchayat and municipal polls by the National Conference and the People’s Democratic Party, he stated, “ I appeal to these parties to take part in these elections because this is the only way to establish direct contact with the people.”
Rajnath Singh inaugurated two pilot projects of smart border fencing on the international border in Jammu on Monday under the Comprehensive Integrated Border Management System (CIBMS) programme.
He told the media, “When I visited Israel, I saw this system there and immediately after that we started work on this project.
“Based on the feedback, the system will be foolproof. I have launched two such pilot projects here. We will launch a similar 60 km long pilot project in Assam.”
