Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Saturday came down heavily on Narendra Modi-led BJP government for its failure in giving an apt reply to Pakistan, saying the neighbouring country should have been answered with bullets rather than dialogues.
Throwing a series of sharp questions at the Prime Minister, the Rajya Sabha MP said he would like to ask Modi about his 2014 poll promises which assured India to make Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) a part of the country.
"Now it is going to be 5 years of this government. When you had asked for votes you had promised this and we had clapped for you. Where did that strength go now?" Raut asserted.

Referring to Pakistan’s army chief General Qamar Javed's threat to India, Raut launched another scathing attack on the Modi government, asking people to question the PM and Defence Minister about the manner in which Pakistan Army Chief warned our country.
"The manner in which Pakistan Army Chief has threatened, the PM and Defence Minister should be asked about it. Before the election, BJP and the PM had said they will make Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, a part of India. We would like to ask the PM about it," the Shiv Sena leader said.

Raut's statement came a day after Pakistan Army Chief General Bajwa threat to India that Pakistan will 'avenge the blood of its soldier being shed at the border’.
"We have learned a lot from the wars of 65 and 71. We were able to further strengthen our defence forces in the wake of these wars. Despite difficult economic times, we were able to become an atomic power," Bajwa was quoted while addressing the Defence and Martyrs Day ceremony organised at the Pakistan Army headquarters in Rawalpindi on Thursday.
The event was also attended by Pakistan Prime Minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan.
