Union home minister Rajnath Singh said on Wednesday that Pakistan has acknowledged for the first time that the terror attack in Pathankot originated on its soil.

“Pakistan had been continuously saying that it has no involvement in militant and terror activities in India. But now, it has acknowledged the Pathankot attack and filed an FIR. Their (probe) team has come here and our team is going to Pakistan,” Singh told election rallies in Assam.

“This is due to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s astute and positive political capability. All the countries of the world are acknowledging that India’s strength is increasing. Modi has established India’s importance in the global scenario,” Singh said.

Accusing Congress of continuously misleading the people of the country, he said, “I have been in politics all my life, but I don’t indulge in the politics of misleading people of the country. I don’t do politics like Congress.”
