New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today stated that India has never coveted any territory, never attacked another country. He said this after inaugurating the Pravasi Bharatiya Kendra, a state-of-the-art complex dedicated to overseas Indians.
“India has never coveted any territory, never attacked another country. Yet thousands of Indians gave their lives in the World War I,” Modi said
“In the last two years, you have seen how the government rescued people from conflict situations, not just Indians but foreigners too.”
The Prime Minister’s remarks came amid deteriorating India-Pakistan ties and escalating border tension after the September 18 terror attack that killed 19 Indian soldiers.
