‘The government is with you’: Defence Minister Rajnath Singh Tells Army in Jammu

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, during his visit to Jammu to assess the security situation in the aftermath of an ambush on two Army vehicles that claimed four lives, expressed support for the armed forces.

The Minister said, “Every soldier is like a family member to us. It is unacceptable to us if anyone casts an evil eye on you.”

Singh praised the role of security and intelligence agencies in preventing such attacks and assured, “Whatever support is needed to step up surveillance will be provided by the government. The doors to our treasury are fully open.”

Singh said, “Such attacks should not be taken for granted.” He acknowledged the soldiers’ vigilance but stressed the need for increased alertness, lauding their bravery and sacrifice. “Your efforts have no parallel and are priceless,” he added.

Highlighting the government’s commitment to the welfare and security of the armed forces, Singh said, “I want to assure you that the government is with you, and your welfare and security are high on our priority list.”

Regarding recent lapses in Army operations, the Defence Minister mentioned a Brigadier-level officer facing a probe and acknowledged the ongoing outrage over the deaths of three civilians in the Poonch sector. Singh expressed intent to meet residents and families of the deceased civilians during his visit.

The Defence Minister’s visit coincides with heightened security measures across Jammu. Army Chief General Manoj Pande had previously visited the Union Territory to review the security scenario.

Later in the day, Singh is expected to chair a high-level security meeting at Raj Bhavan in Jammu to discuss strategies and responses to recent developments further.
