Meanwhile, days after the air strikes in terror camps of Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) in Balakot, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that this won’t be the country’s last such action against terrorism emanating from the neighbouring country.
Addressing a public gathering in Gujarat’s Ahmedabad, PM asserted on Monday that he will target the militants even if they hide in the bowels of the earth. “It is our principle to kill them by barging into their houses,” the Prime Minister added.
