The Shiv Sena today said the prime minister has been assertive about India’s stand on terrorism globally but the situation back home, especially in Kashmir has been worrisome, remarks that come against the backdrop of Narendra Modi’s statement in the US on surgical strikes. The party said that even as the prime minister tries to change the face of India globally, the condition of internal security is a cause for concern.
“There was definitely a lot of weight in PM Modi’s statement on surgical strikes. However, even after the strikes, terrorist activities from the Pakistani side have continued and our soldiers are getting martyred,” the Sena said in an editorial in party mouthpiece ‘Saamana’.
On the occasion of Eid, Pakistani flags were hoisted and pro-Pakistani slogans were raised in Kashmir, it claimed. “(US President) Donald Trump has assured India of standing by it to counter terrorism. Earlier Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton too said the same thing. But how much did they actually help is a matter of investigation.”
