Patna (Bihar) [India], Oct 3 (ANI): Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday said that there was no need to be worried over the incidents taking place along the border, adding that the forces are capable enough to tackle any situation. Nitish said that the surgical strike was a needed and a successful step. He, however, added it would be wrong to assume that it could put an end to all issues. "We should not get anxious with regard to the incidents taking place at the border. We all know what the situation is. The Centre is taking all steps to address the issue. The entire nation is one at this point of time. Our army and paramilitary forces are capable enough to deal with any attack," he said. "We should not get worried after such incidents. We should not think that attacks are increasing because of the surgical attack. The surgical attack was a successful step and it was needed. But to expect that one surgical strike will end all problems is not wise. We need to stand united at this hour," he added. In the latest incident, the terrorists attacked near a camp of the 46 Rashtriya Rifles in Baramulla late on Sunday night. The terrorists, whose numbers are still unknown, tried to enter the camp through a public park near it, but failed to breach the security. Pakistan targeted Indian posts along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir's Akhnoor tehsil late Sunday evening. Pakistan has stepped up cross-border firing after the Indian Army conducted surgical strikes on terror launch pads in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK). (ANI)
