Terror attacks on country will not be tolerated: Rajnath

"We have always tried to maintain good relations with our neighbours, but Pakistan just does not want to mend its ways.

Indian soldiers successfully executed operations against terrorists on Pakistani soil after their cowardly attack on our forces, and gave a strong message to the world that if needed, Indian Army can hit terrorists on their soil," he said referring to Army's surgical strikes in last September.

Rajnath was speaking at the state-level function organised on the occasion of the 477th Jayanti of Maharana Pratap in Kalayat, district Kaithal in Haryana.

Paying glowing tributes to Maharana Pratap, he said the warrior king embodied valour and the spirit of self-sacrifice.

The stories of Maharana's sacrifice for his motherland continue to serve as a source of inspiration for all persons irrespective of caste, religion and faith, even in the contemporary times.

He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had implemented several schemes for taking the country forward through skill development and capacity-building of the youth.

Other countries have also acknowledged the effective steps taken by him to promote India on a global scale. Housing would be provided to all by 2022 and the income of farmers would be doubled, he added.
