New Delhi: PM Modi invoked Ramayana yesterday and urged people to keep vigil against terror and fight it the way “Jatayu fought Ravana”.
Addressing the Dussehra crowd in Lucknow, he said, “Ravana today has raised his head in a different form. If a country of 1.25 crore keeps an eye on every terrorist activity, terrorists will never succeed.”
In a veiled reference to Pakistan, PM Modi said that countries which support terrorism should not be spared.
