With the rise of tension along the Line of Control (LoC) after frequent terrorist infiltrations and cease-fire violations, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar expressed support towards the Narendra Modi-led Central government’s steps against terrorism.

In a statement to ANI, the Bihar CM today said, “In matters related to terrorism, contradictory political views won’t help; We’re with Centre, necessary steps are being taken.”

At least two heavily armed terrorists today launched a ‘Fidayeen’ (suicide) attack on the army camps at Baramulla district of Jammu and Kashmir, killing one BSF jawan. The militant strike came days after India carried out surgical strikes along the LoC in Pakistan, destroying several terrorist launch pads and killing at least 38 militants. India’s attack on terrorist bases came as a response to the Uri terror attack, where 18 Indian army jawans were martyred.On 18th September, four heavily armed terrorists attacked army bases along the LoC at Uri in Kashmir. The attack was criticized internationally, with India accusing Pakistan of having involvement in the attack. With discontent over the Uri attack, India boycotted the SAARC meeting, which was scheduled to be held in Pakistan and following India, other South Asian nations like Bangladesh, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Afghanistan also isolated Pakistan by refusing to participate in the meet if held in Islamabad.

Supporting Modi’s decision to isolate Pakistan and carrying out strikes against terrorism, Nitish Kumar claimed that the whole nation is united against terrorism.

“We shouldn’t get so anxious on matters related to the border; whole nation is united; Army has enough power to handle it,” said Kumar in a statement to ANI.

Earlier today, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal also expressed support towards the Prime Minister by appreciating his will power in handling the issue.

“We may disagree with PM on various issues but I salute him for the will power he showed on this issue ,” Arvind Kejriwal told ANI. Kejriwal has also appealed to the Prime Minister to expose the false propaganda of Pakistan army on the surgical strikes.
