The Vice President said that the book details hitherto unknown aspects of the planning and execution of the surgical strikes, revamping of New Delhi’s policy towards China and Pakistan, India’s renewed global policy focus on Middle East, Prime Minister Modi’s attempt to leverage the Indian diaspora worldwide, besides focusing on some small but far-reaching steps taken to secure India in every possible way – on land, space, cyber and maritime domains.
The Vice President said that the issue of terrorism is at the fore front of government’s foreign policy world over. He further said that terrorism has no religion; it’s a threat to humanity and it should be curbed and we must be humane and sensitive in our approach while interacting with others. If there is tension there can’t be attention towards development, this should bear the basic principle, he added.
The Vice President said that in democracy violence has no place and bullet cannot bring change where as ballot can. The policy of government should be zero tolerance towards terrorism and corruption both will eat away the vitals of our system, he added.
