Security forces fully prepared, says Rajnath Singh on reactivation of terror camps in Balakot

New Delhi: Two days after the Army Chief said that terror camps in Pakistan were being reactivated, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday said Indian security forces were fully prepared to meet the situation. 

He was responding to a query on Army Chief General Bipin Rawat’s statement on the reactivation of terror camps in Balakot in Pakistan. “Don’t worry, our security forces are fully prepared,” he told reporters.

Rawat had on Monday said that Pakistan has reactivated the Balakot terror camp very recently and about 500 infiltrators were waiting to sneak into India. 

Responding to another query about Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh seeking the Home Ministry’s help on incidents of Pakistan-origin drones dropping consignments of arms and ammunition, the Defense Minister said as far as the country’s security was concerned, the armed forces have the capability to defeat any such challenges.
