New Delhi, Oct 9 (IANS) Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi does not have to comment on the ceasefire violations by Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir.

“The prime minister does not have to comment on whatever is happening at the border. The BSF and the armed forces are responding,” the minister tweeted.

His comment came as an apparent response to the opposition which has questioned the government’s silence on the ceasefire violations by Pakistan.

Modi, who was asked about the ceasefire violations at an event Wednesday, said: “Everything will be fine soon.”

The home minister said the government would not let India down.

Seven civilians have been killed so far in Pakistani firing in areas close to the border since Oct 6. A total of 60 people have been injured in the firing.
