He also said there are different types of forces operating in Pakistan but India engages only with a democratically-elected system.

"Those who have to work from the table, will work from the table and those who have to work at the border, will work at border with full strength,” he stated.

"Each one will fulfill the responsibility entrusted to them. And our jawans are fulfilling their responsibilities. It's true that pressure on terrorists has increased, their schemes are proving unsuccessful,” the PM added.

"The intent with which they move forward are foiled and they have to face major challenges. It is because of this disappointment that such incidents are taking place and our jawans are risking their lives and protecting the country. We are very proud of our Jawans," he said.
