Top officials, including Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar and the Director General of Military Operations (DGMO) Lt. Gen. Ranbir Singh will on Tuesday brief a panel of MPs on the surgical strikes conducted by the Indian Army across the Line of Control (LoC) on September 28.
A notice issued by the Lok Sabha secretariat said that the Parliamentary Standing Committee on External Affairs, headed by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor, is scheduled to meet today when it would be briefed on India-Pakistan relations with a specific reference to the recent surgical strikes.
The meeting assumes significance as the government had earlier expressed reservations over giving a briefing on the same topic to the Parliamentary Committee on Defence.
