SINGAPORE: Hitting out at Pakistan, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday said that the neighbouring country does not live up to the meaning of its name and keeps on doing nefarious acts.
Addressing the Indian diaspora here, Singh also defended the revocation of Article 370 and said that it was unfortunate that one full fledged state (Jammu and Kashmir) was not integrated with the rest of the country.
Singh, who arrived here on Monday night on a two-day visit, said that the Government will never compromise national interest.
“We have a neighbour whose name is Pakistan (land of the pure) but it keeps on doing ‘na-Pak’ (nefarious) acts,” he said, taking a swipe at Pakistan, which has downgraded diplomatic ties with India after it revoked Jammu and Kashmir’s special status. (AGENCIES)
