After the Indian army officially affirmed about the surgical operation along the Line of Control (LoC) reactions appreciating the operation flowed across the country.
Daughter of SK Vidyarthi who was martyred in the Uri attack said, “I am happy that Indian army initiated and conducted these strikes.” Her mother said that she was happy but would have been happier if the strike was carried out earlier. The widow of the martyred soldier commended the surgical strike as “very good”.

The strike came after Uri terror attack which left 18 Indian soldiers dead on September 18. The attack is considered as one of the deadliest on Indian army.
