Bengaluru: India had foiled Pakistan's design to export terror by neutralising infiltrators from across the border, said Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday.
"We have defeated Pakistan's nefarious design to weaken India by exporting terror with anti-terror operations and neutralising infiltrators from across the border on almost daily basis," he said at a function in Bengaluru .
Lauding the Indian Army for retaliating with vehemence at every bullet fired by Pakistan from the other side of the Line of Control, Rajnath Singh said the world had noted that India was a strong country.
"The peaceful resolution of the Doka La standoff on the India-China border has enhanced our image the world over," he said at the ninth convention of the Vishwakarma community in the city.
Claiming that the NDA government had provided corruption-free governance over the last three years, the home minister said the poor and downtrodden were being given loans under the Mudra scheme for their upliftment.
"I will soon take up the demand for setting up the Vishwakarma community Development Corporation with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and to celebrate Vishwakarma Jayanthi across the country," he assured the backward community on the occasion.
He also assured the community to accord constitutional status to the National Commission for Backward Classes to ensure social and economic justice to all backward castes across the country.
