We will intensify our activities and will hoist the tricolour and party flag in every house,” the BJP leader said.Describing the attack on Najar as an act of cowardice, Raina said Pakistan-backed terrorists are undertaking such attacks under frustration.“The people in Jammu and Kashmir know that the terrorists and separatists have destroyed the region at the behest of Pakistan over the past 30 years by indulging in innocent killings,” he said.Complimenting the security forces for anti-terror operations, he said: “Our Army, paramilitary forces and police are neutralising the terrorists to clean the valley of their presence. The attacks are the result of their frustration and we will not be cowed down by such dastardly acts.
