    Very sad to see daily basis we loosing our soldiers. We cannot imagine about the life of braved soldiers family. Before BJP was telling how the terrorist entering in to our teritory since we have one of the best security forces. But where is Andhbhakts not questioning Modi and his team regarding this?. Before Godi media showing no terrorists all hiding because of Modi.... Now where is Modi is hiding?.
