According to The Hindu, Home Minister Rajnath Singh said on Sunday that Indian troops have instructions to “shoot limitless bullets to retaliate to a single fire on our territory” from Pakistan.

Speaking at an election rally in Agartala in India, Singh said India wanted peaceful relations with Pakistan, but would retaliate aggressively if provoked. “I have given standing orders to our forces to shoot limitless bullets to retaliate,” he said.

"We do not want to attack Pakistan first. We want to live with peace and harmony with our all neighbours. But most unfortunately, Pakistan is trying to tear down Jammu and Kashmir and continue attacks on our forces and Indian territory,” he said.
