New Delhi: BJP’s vice-presidential nominee Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday warned Pakistan against aiding and abetting terrorism, asking the neighbour to “recall what happened in 1971”.

“Our neighbour should understand that aiding and abetting terror will not help them. They should recall what happened in 1971,” the former Union minister said at a Kargil Parakram Rally. He was referring to the 1971 war between India and Pakistan which resulted in the creation of Bangladesh.

India will mark Kargil Vijay Diwas on July 26 amid tensions with Pakistan over repeated ceasefire violations and the death sentence handed to Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav on spying charges.

“Ours is a peace loving country. But when this highly coveted peace is denied to us, our brave soldiers respond in a befitting manner,” Naidu tweeted later in the day.

Naidu had stepped down as Information and Broadcasting minister last week after the BJP announced him as its vice-presidential nominee against opposition candidate Gopalkrishna Gandhi.

Naidu so far enjoys the support of 485 of the 788 members of the Electoral College that will choose the next vice-president on August 5, his election managers have said.
