RK responded to these attacks saying, “India will hit back harder every time it is targeted.” “It was a statement of policy…Our policy is that we will hit you back every time you hit us. We will hit you back harder. So, I think a couple of more time we hit them back, it will certainly settle in their mind,” he said.

The surgical strike by the Indian army was not a one-off event and if Pakistan continues to bleed India through such terrorist attacks, they will pay heavily.

BJP leader added that the nation needs to “follow up on its policy of imposing cost”. India needs to revisit the security procedure, especially in Jammu and Kashmir.

The attack on the Nagrota army camp has taken place in the midst of the frequent ceasefire violations by Pakistani army. The attacks serve as a cover when the terrorists, supported by the Pakistani defense establishments, infiltrate the border. These attacks have escalated the terrorist infiltration from the other side of the border.
