In the aftermath of the Pampore attack, Home Minister Rajnath Singh has sent out a stern message to our neighbour saying, "India won't count bullets if Pakistan fires first."

Expressing pain at the ambush of eight CRPF personnel in Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday, Singh said the brave security personnel gunned down the two terrorists.

Stating that the approach of the neighbouring country was not like what it should be, Singh on Sunday recalled he gave "standing orders" to the Director General after the killing of five citizens by Pakistani Rangers on the borders one-and-a-half years ago.

Singh elaborated when the DG had told him that there was no response from Pakistan even after the Indian side showed white flag for dialogue, he had given standing orders that while no bullet should be fired first, but if any bullet was fired from that side (then) "forget the count of the bullets fired" by us.

Singh added that India would win against terrorism and no power could prevent it from achieving the success. "We will win against terrorism," Singh said addressing 'Haryali Sapath Samaraho and Loktantra Bachao' programme oraganised by BJP's Mahanagar unit.
