Attempting to silence the opposition criticism of Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government in the wake of the Pathankot terror attack, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday reiterated that the ruling dispensation follows zero tolerance policy on terrorism.

Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs and BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi told ANI the present regime is committed to national security and would befittingly respond in crisis.

“There is a clear message for all terrorists and their bosses that India is not at all tolerant towards terror. We don’t compromise on issues which involves our national security,” he said.

“We want peace to prevail in world, but if the terrorist outfits want to hinder that peace progress then they would be given befitting reply by our security forces,” he added.

Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar today briefed Prime Minister Modi about the ongoing attack at the Air Force Base in Pathankot where two terrorists are believed to be holed up and a fierce counter-operation is underway to smoke them out.

Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi will brief the media on the attack at 5 pm today giving details about the counter operation.

Meanwhile, fresh firing began today at the Base after reports emerged of terrorists who were still active inside.

So far, seven defence personnel have been martyred including a National Security Guard (NSG) Lt. Colonel who succumbed to his injuries in the combing operations today.

A Garud commando and two Defence Security Corps (DSC) personnel succumbed to their injuries in the hospital last night. Eight DSC jawans and a Garud commando have been injured in the attack so far.

    Congress is biggest enemy of this country who looted this country recklessly in last 68 years making this country bankrupt causing acute poverty & backwardness. There are large number of corruption cases pending against top Congress leaders but nothing has happened till date. BJP govt is also bluffing public by not acting against corrupts of Country in spite of repeated commitment made by Modi during Lok sabha elections resulted in BJP lost image in public domain & it is also treated by public as CORRUPT Party like Congress. The future of BJP is very bleak unless it takes swift action against corruption & corrupts by seizing all their ets. Corruption is gravest danger of this country which is main reason for terrorist activity, anarchy & turmoil all over country which must be curbed all costs.
