“In Kashmir, our army were fighting with the terrorists. Congress government had given them the direction that till they (terrorist) fires a bullet on you, you don’t retaliate,” he said.
Defence minister backed the soldiers by saying that troops are giving an apt reply to the enemy.
“Our soldiers now don’t need to seek permission from the Defence Ministry to fire at the person who fires at them.
They have complete power and they are giving an apt reply to our enemy. I feel bad that some of our soldiers are martyred,” the former Goa chief minister said.
