Rajya Sabha leader and senior politician Amar Singh on Monday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take strong actions against neighbours Pakistan after the mutilated bodies of two jawans were recovered today.

Amar Singh further said that Pakistan’s attitude towards India had not changed despite numerous attempts to solve the conflicts by former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and PM Narendra Modi.
The expelled leader also took pot-shots at neighbouring China. Slamming the not-so-friendly neighbours, Amar Singh said that China was using Pakistan as its “special purpose vehicle” to create “chaos” in India. Singh also welcomed the central government’s decision to allow Dalai Lama visit Arunachal Pradesh despite severe objections from Beijing.

Speaking to reporters, Jaitley had said, ” “The Act of killing & mutilating the bodies of two of our soldiers is the most reprehensible & barbaric. The sacrifice will not go in vain.” “We have the fullest confidence in our Armed forces who will react appropriately,” he added. “This is a reprehensible and an inhuman act. Such attacks do not take place during war,” he added.
