IAF takes ‘necessary steps’ for nation’s security: Javadekar
Ahmedabad: Union Minister Prakash Javadekar on Tuesday said the Indian Air Force (IAF) has taken “necessary steps” for the nation’s security after Pakistan claimed that Indian fighter jets struck inside Pakistan.
“Prime Minister Narendra Modi had given full freedom to the forces,” the Human Resource Development Minister told the media.
“IAF has taken the necessary steps for the security of the nation. The entire country stands with the forces,” the Minister said in what was the first official statement by the government hours after Pakistan claimed that Indian jets crossed the Line of Control (LoC).
