Pak continuing with its antics, but Kashmir situation has improved: Rajnath

LUCKNOW, Nov 11: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today said Pakistan was continuing with its antics and making efforts to break India, but in spite of that, the situation in Jammu and Kashmir had impr-oved significantly.
He also said there was a decline in the incidents of extremism and that the credit for this should go to the followers of Islam in the country.
Speaking at an event organised by a newspaper here today, Singh said, “Pakistan is continuing with its antics and making efforts to break us, but the co-ordination among our Army, paramilitary forces, the Jammu and Kashmir Police and intelligence agencies has been excellent.”
Singh also said the world had started realising that India was no longer a weak nation and that it belonged to the club of powerful countries in the world.
He said, “At the international level, India’s importance has grown. The world realises that India, at this point of time, has emerged as the biggest economy in the world.
India today is no longer a weak country, but in the club of the powerful nations of the world.”
Replying to a question, Singh said, “At places, there are more praises and less criticism now. Whatever we had envisaged to achieve, we have achieved it.”
On another question pertaining to the performance of the BJP-led government at the Centre over the last three years, he said he would not like to evaluate his own performance, but added that overall, the clout and credibility of the country had increased. (Agencies)
