The BJP-led NDA government has taken a tough stand against ceasefire violations that have become a norm on the western International Border and the Line of Control.

Top sources told dna that the Border Security Force has been asked not to lie low by the government and instead of just matching the firing from Pakistani Rangers increase the graded retaliatory response forcing the adversary to stop firing.

The BSF has also been told to postpone the flag meeting and agree to hold it only once the firing stops, sources said.

BSF director general, D K Pathak clearly reflected this resolve when he said that the instructions to his men is to give a 'muh-tod jawaab' (befitting reply) to the other side.

"The instructions for our men are (to launch) equal or more fire. We just can't do less fire...it is equal or more fire. We will give them muh-tod jawaab," said Pathak adding that Pakistan does it on purpose to infiltrate terrorists inside India.
