"While Modi and his team, particularly Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, were busy thumping their chests, taking credit for securing the country's borders through surgical strikes, terrorist and military incursions from across the border continued unabated," Amarinder said said in a statement.

Urging the to take urgent steps to prevent recurrence of such incidents, Amarinder said rather than "looking for opportunities" to create "war hysteria", the Prime Minister should, "in national interest, engage with Islamabad", as well as the international community, to reduce the border tensions without further delay.
