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.
