Venkaiah Naidu: India won’t be silent spectator to nonsense

Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu, at a discussion during his tour to Costa Rica and Paraguay, stated India’s position on the prospect of war, that the country doesn’t “want war but can’t be silent spectator to nonsense going on for a war”.
Naidu claimed that India doesn’t wish to spoil relations with its neighbours, and wants to maintain friendly relations with them, and that the country is trying its best to achieve that.
The former Minister of Urban Development blatantly accused Pakistan for “funding terrorism” despite Pakistani leaders making “public commitments”.
Naidu was reported as saying that India is capable of handling terrorists and doesn’t need help. He gave the example of the recent Pulwama attack, where 40 CRPF soldiers were killed, in whose response the Indian Air Force “hit the target precisely” without injuring any civilians or the military, referring to the IAF airstrike conducted ten days ago in the largest terror camp in Pakistan.
When asked about the casualties, following Rajnath Singh’s comments at an election campaign in India where the Home Minister advised the people who were doubting the airstrike to inquire with the Pakistan government, Naidu said that it was Pakistan’s responsibility to count the numbers, and not India.
