Having taken risky initiatives, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said India will have to be “alert and conscious” all the time but wondered with whom in Pakistan red lines can be drawn for conducting talks — with the elected government or “other actors”.
He also said that India would have to drive home the advantage on the fact that the world is now convinced of its views on terrorism from across the border by continuing to put forth its views on this matter.
“The first thing is that with whom in Pakistan you will decide about laxman rekha — with an elected government or with other actors. So India will have to be alert and conscious all the time. There should not be any laxity and negligence,” he told Times Now channel.
“Earlier the world would not buy India’s theory on terrorism and sometime it would even treat it as out law and order problem. Now the whole world is accepting what India says on terrorism. It is accepting the loss caused to India by terorrism, the loss caused to humanity by terrorism. I believe India will have to continue putting forth its view on this matter,” the prime minister said.
