New Delhi: Under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, India has been transformed into a strong, confident & self-reliant nation which is fully equipped to deal with all kinds of threats and challenges. This was stated by Raksha Mantri Rajnath Singh at a function in Udaipur, Rajasthan today. He stated that the steps taken by the Government in the last eight years have injected a new confidence into the Armed Forces.
“It is the result of the last eight years that India is no longer weak. We clarified our stand on terrorism when our Armed Forces, displaying tremendous might, carried out surgical strikes in 2016 and Balakot airstrikes in 2019. It was a proof that India’s military prowess is no less than any country,” Rajnath Singh said. He assured the Nation that the Armed Forces are deployed with full readiness to protect the people from anti-India elements.
The Raksha Mantri asserted that the foundation of ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’ has been laid under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and this strong & self-reliant ‘New India’ is moving shoulder-to-shoulder with powerful countries.
Rajnath Singh pointed out that the efforts taken by the Government have started to bear fruit as India is not only catering to its own needs, but is also fulfilling the requirements of other countries.
Rajnath Singh was in Udaipur to unveil the statue of Panna Dhai, a 16th-century nursemaid to Udai Singh II, the fourth son of Indian ruler Sangram Singh I, popularly known as Rana Sanga. Paying glowing tributes, Rajnath Singh commended the bravery of Panna Dhai, who sacrificed her son to protect Udai Singh II, father of Maharana Pratap, in the interest of Mewar and the entire country. He urged the people to take inspiration from Panna Dhai and play their part in Nation Building.
