Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s green signal to tough military action garnered much appreciation. Surprisingly, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi too joined the bandwagon and praised Modi for the recent surgical strike.
“My party and I stand with PM Narendra Modi. What he has done is right,” Congress VP Rahul Gandhi had said.
Following the terror attack in Uri, Jammu and Kashmir, where militants stormed an army camp, killing 19 Indian soldiers, Modi had authorised tough military action against Pakistan.
On the intervening night of September 28 and 29, India conducted surgical strikes across the Line of control (LoC) in Pakistan, laying to waste seven terror launch pads.
