Obama incidentally will be  the first US President to attend India’s Republic day celebrations.

 In a stern warning it said that  Pakistan would face dire consequences if it crosses the line  and forments trouble  during his much talked about India tour. US has been keeping a constant watch on Pakistan and asked to ensure that there is no cross-border terror incident during the trip.

 According to media reports , the warning has been issued keeping the track record of Pakistan-based militant groups that have carried out attacks in India that have coincided with high-profile visits from the US. In dastradly attacks militants had shot dead 36 Sikhs in March 20, 2000, in the Anantnag district of Jammu and Kashmir, coinciding with the visit of the then US President Bill Clinton’s visit  to India. Obama is scheduled to travel to New Delhi from Jan 25 to Jan 27.
