Sat Sharma, while addressing a number of public gatherings in border villages, assured that whatever genuine demands have been put by the border people will be taken up with the Narendra Modi government at the earliest and it will be stressed upon that the same are fulfilled. He said that after the Uri attack on our soldiers, Pakistan has been exposed and isolated at International level and it is the victory of the PM Narendra Modi’s diplomacy. He said that the surgical strikes on launching pads in PoK has frustrated Pakistan and is indulging in unprovoked firing on Indian side which is being taken very seriously. “Although the government has asked the people living in villages touching border with Pakistan to move to safer places, there are many villages whose residents have displayed valour to stay and face the Pakistan”, Sat said and added that the border people have always served as a second line defence during all the wars which worked to boost the morale of the army and security forces. He also stressed upon the local officers of administration to ensure availability of all the essential commodities in these villages.
