Srinagar: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said his government managed to contain ‘militancy’ to only “two and a half” districts in Jammu and Kashmir.
Addressing a poll rally at Amreli in Gujarat, Modi said that what he learnt in Gujarat helped him during the long Doklam standoff with China in 2017.
Referring to various incidents of bomb blasts in the country previously, he said, “In the last five years no bomb blast took place in any other part of the country. We managed to contain militancy to just two and a half districts in Jammu and Kashmir,” he said.
On Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s statement of trying to approach India after the Balakot air strike, Modi said the leader “had to make a public plea to us to pick up the phone”. (Agencies)
