New Delhi, [India], Sept. 20 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday reiterated that acts of terror and violence being pursued by Pakistan will not go unpunished.

Party leader Nalin Kohli told ANI, "Prime Minister Narendra Modi Ji himself has said that this won't be allowed to go unpunished. Whether it is our Defence Minister, Home Minister, Finance Minister, the General of our Army everyone have spoke on it or have started to take stock of the situation."

"Everything has a limit with regard to that and we should now allow the Government of India to do what it is allowed to do and whatever needs to be done, will have to be done," he added.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Rajnath Singh yesterday strongly condemned the terrorist attack in Uri.

Prime Minister Modi assured the nation that those behind this will not go unpunished.

Rajnath said Islamabad has become a terrorist state.

In a series of tweets after the attack, the Prime Minister said: "I assure the nation that those behind this despicable attack will not go unpunished".

He added, "We salute all those martyred in Uri. Their services to the nation will always be remembered. My thoughts are with the bereaved families (of the Army jawans)".

Sources have said that External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj will strongly emphasize Pakistan's involvement in the attack during her UNGA speech on September 26.

Pakistan has, however, flatly rejected New Delhi's claims of involvement in the Uri terror attack, stating that the latter has a traditional tendency to point fingers at the former whenever a terror attack takes place on Indian soil.(ANI)
