Women from all communities tie rakhis on Modi's wrist

Gandhinagar: Gujarat Chief minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday reached out to the minorities on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan. Women and girls from all communities tied rakhis on Modi's wrist.

Politics was also not far behind as Modi took the opportunity to hit out at the Centre's security policy in the wake of ceasefire violations along the Line of Control, saying the government had failed to protect its soldiers.

"How do we expect our soldiers to protect us if they cannot be saved against brutal attacks from Pakistan and China? This Raksha Bandhan, we must reflect on the security of Mother India," Modi said.
