Modi’s remarks prompt speculation over post-air strike action

AHMEDABAD: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said he will find out those responsible for terror acts in India “even if they hide in the bowels of the earth”.

Modi also asked the opposition not to malign India’s armed forces.

“What our opposition leaders say become headlines in Pakistan newspaper today,” Modi said, addressing a gathering here.

In a veiled reference to India’s air strike in Pakistan, Modi said, “If one work gets over, our Government doesn’t sleep, but gets ready for another.”

“We won’t lag behind when it comes to taking big and bitter decisions,” he said.

Referring to the 2008 attack at Ahmedabad civil hospital, Modi said, “should not those sitting in Delhi at that time have taught those sitting in Pakistan a lesson.” (AGENCIES)
