Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu has said that India is a peace-loving country that never attacked anyone. He said that terrorism and drug trafficking from across the border are being imposed on our country, but the Indian security forces are thwarting these efforts of the neighboring countries. The Vice President was addressing security personnel in the 191st Battalion of Border Security Force in Jaisalmer today. He said that terrorists are not only getting political support and shelter from cross borders but they are also being provided modern weapons like drones. They are using new technologies of digital communication. But, in the past months, the troops of the Border Security Force have thwarted the infiltration of such drones several times.
The Vice President appreciated the government’s efforts for providing modern technology to the security forces. He said that the security forces are working in difficult conditions in the border areas of Rajasthan.
