Kaithal (Haryana) [India], May 9 (ANI): Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday castigated Pakistan for its unprovoked aggression along the Line of Control (LoC) recently. Addressing a gathering here, Rajnath said that Islamabad was not changing its devilments despite India's repeated efforts for cordial relationships with Pakistan. "Considering Pakistan as neighbour, we tried many a times to develop good relations with it, but Pakistan has not stopped its devilments," said Rajnath. This was Rajnath's second warning to Pakistan on Tuesday. Earlier in the day, the Home Minister had advised Pakistan to read India's 2016 surgical strike's message. Addressing a function in Pali, Rajasthan, Rajnath said that 2016 surgical strike was a message to Pakistan that if need arises India can anytime cross the border. Rajnath said Indian Border Security Force (BSF) had his standing orders to give a befitting reply to Pakistan if it shows any type of aggression. "There is my standing order to the Director General of the Border Security Force (BSF) that first bullet shouldn't be fired from our side but if Pakistan fires bullet then bullets fired from our side shouldn't be counted," said Singh. The Home Minister's warnings come in the backdrop of recent ceasefire violations by Pakistan. On May 1, Pakistan's Border Action Team (BAT) with the help of Pakistan Army killed two soldiers- Army subedar Paramjit Singh and Border Security Force (BSF) head constable Prem Sagar- and later mutilated their bodies.
