The Prime Minister must always be mindful of the implications of his words and declarations on our Nation’s security as also strategic and territorial interests,” Manmohan Singh said.
Former PM Manmohan Singh was referring to Mr. Modi’s s statement at the all-party meeting on the Ladakh clash in which 20 soldiers were killed, On Friday, at an all-party meeting, PM Modi had said: “Neither is anyone inside our territory nor are any of our posts captured”.
