Pakistan hasn't learnt any lesson, says Manohar Parrikar

As ceasefire violations by Pakistan continued, the Minister of Defence Manohar Parrikar said Pakistan does not seem to learn any lesson.

While addressing a gathering, the Minister reportedly said, ' Pakistan does not like to stay quiet even on New Year day. They started cross-border firing at 12.30 pm and don’t seem to learn (any) lesson.'

Taking a dig at both Pakistan and China, he also said, 'We are surrounded in northern boundaries by two neighbours who are not very comfortable with us.' In fresh ceasefire violation, Pakistan Rangers targetted 13 border outposts in Samba Sector, a day after an Indian jawan and four Pakistani soldiers were killed in exchange of fire.

Meanwhile, India is expected to lodge a strong protest with Pakistan over the unabated ceasefire violations, along the International Border in the past three days and seventh in last eight days.

Responding to Pakistan’s ceasefire violations, Parrikar had said that the Indian security forces should not hold back in the face of firing and must retaliate with 'double the force'.

The Minister who was in Bengaluru described the city as 'the brain of India' in Space research. 'We are thankful to Bengaluru.'

Parrikar was speaking at an event organised by 'Adamya Chetana', an NGO working in the field of social development managed by Union Minister Ananth Kumar's wife Tejaswini.

The Home Minister Rajanth Singh said,'Our jawans are protecting the border with all their might. No one can dare cast an evil eye on India. Even if someone tries to do so, the BSF and other security forces will give them a fitting reply.'

He also said Pakistan should desist from such violations and officials of both the countries have been in touch over the issue. 'Pakistan should not do this. Diplomats of both the countries remain in constant touch,' Singh said, adding normalcy will return soon.

It was also reported that the BSF has also destroyed a terror camp on the other side of RS Pura Sector.
