Pak surgical strikes: Here's how Opposition stood united behind Narendra Modi

Leaders across parties keep political differences apart and support the army's surgical strikes

Ahead of the all-party meet after the Indian army carried out surgical strikes, party leaders pour their support to the government.

Since the surgical strikes were carried across the Line of Control (LoC) out on Thursday, “war-like” situation has brought  the political parties  together. Congress party chief Sonia Gandhi said, “We stand with the Govt in its actions to protect country’s security”.


Sonia Gandhi said Pakistan will take necessary action to dismantle the infrastructure that it has provided to terror groups. The Congress party hoped that the Pakistani government will recognise that it has greater responsibility to raze terrorism in its soil.

Former Defence Minister AK Antony commended the surgical strikes and said, “We support the government and its endeavour to protect our national security.” He added that the surgical strikes were befitting reply to Pakistan. “I salute the bravery of Indian forces”, he said.

The former minister also commended the surgical strikes which have a strong message.

CPI (M) leader Sitaram Yechury said they have got the  Director General of Military Operations’ (DGMO) brief and Pakistan’s reaction.

While celebrations started in Patna, Ministers and all-party leaders are in rush to attend the all-party meet after the Indian army carried out surgical strikes across the LoC. The strikes razed seven terror launch pads across the LoC.

Indian army launched the surgical strikes after a week of surveillance on the seven launch pads in the LoC. Two Pakistani soldiers were killed and nine other were injured in the strikes across the LoC. Indian army did not suffer any casualty in the strikes.
