New Delhi: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today visited the Border Security Force’ (BSF) Munabao Border Outpost (BOP) in Barmer district on Saturday on the the second day of his visit to the region.
Addressing the BSF personnel, the Home Minister said that India never attacks anyone and we do not intend to occupy others’ land.
Our heritage is “Vasudev Kutumbakam” meaning, “The whole word is one family.”
Singh said we never open fire first, but if attacked, in retaliation we never count the bullets after pulling the trigger.
Lauding the morale of the BSF personnel despite the very adverse temperature and difficult desert terrain, the Union Home Minister assured them that the Government would do everything to improve the border infrastructure and their service condition.
Singh said the damaged border fence at some places would be urgently repaired and it will be periodically reviewed and repaired.
He said floodlighting and a parallel road along the border fencing would also be completed to facilitate effective border patrolling.
He said the issue of camouflage uniform being uncomfortable in the hot temperature flagged by the BSF personnel would also be addressed.
The Union Home Minister said, “I salute you and respect your zeal to serve the nation.
