Bikaner (Rajasthan) [India], Oct 19 (ANI): Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh performed 'Shastra Puja' at Border Security Force (BSF) Sector Headquarters in Rajasthan's Bikaner city along the highly sensitive India-Pakistan border, on the occasion of Dussehra on Friday.
Reiterating Prime Minister Narendra Modi government's resolve to maintain peace in the Kashmir Valley, he said, "We want that peace be maintained in Kashmir and we are making a lot of efforts to achieving it. We have allocated maximum possible funds for development of Kashmir. As far as terrorism is concerned, all terrorists coming there are from Pakistan."
Singh is on a two-day visit to the city to celebrate the festival of Dussehra with the BSF jawans.
'Shastra Puja' or worship of weapons is part of the Dussehra festival which is celebrated to mark the victory of Lord Ram over Ravana.
Last year, the Home Minister had attended Dussehra celebrations at Joshimath in Uttarakhand along the Sino-India border. (ANI)
