New Delhi: Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah told the party office bearers during a meeting today that the Narendra Modi government might again take “out of the box” against Pakistan if it continues to indulge in proxy war against India.
Shah addressed Bharatiya Janata Party national office-bearers at the national capital here ahead of the party’s national executive meeting. The Indian Army’s “surgical strikes” against terrorist launching pads in Pakistan-held Kashmir and the Centre’s move to demonetise Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 notes dominated his address.
A party source told media persons, “Shah during the meet hailed the September 29th military action against terrorists and said India might again take ‘out of box’ action if Pakistan persists with its policy of exporting terrorists to India.”
The national executive meeting, to be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Shah later in the day, assumes significance against the backdrop of the assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Manipur and Goa scheduled for between the February 4 and March 8.
At the executive meeting, the party is expected to make demonetisation as the major plank for chalking out its strategy for the polls to the five state assemblies.
