Asserting the Centre must up the ante against Pakistan and stop gloating over the one lone surgical strike, the Shiv Sena on Tuesday called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi to order Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar to launch an all out attack against the hostile neighbor.
Shiv Sena's fiery statement came in the wake of the three army men being killed today as three-four terrorists stormed into an Army camp in Nagrota on the outskirts of Jammu city.
"Ever since the Uri attack happened, Pakistan has turned the heat and unleashed a string of attacks on us, while we are still beating the drum about one, lone surgical strike. Yes, we did carry out a surgical strike but clearly that has not silenced Pakistan. One mere surgical strike does not amount to teaching Pakistan a lesson," Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut told ANI here.
Talking about Indian Government's mission to isolate Pakistan on a global level, Raut further said that such an action much begin at the grassroot level in the national capital, where the Pakistan High Commission is located.
"The Pakistan High Commission is standing tall in Delhi on our land. From our soil they are strengthening Kashmiri terrorists. We must stop gloating over one surgical strike and the Prime Minister must instruct the Defence Minister to gouge out Pakistan's eyes," Raut said.
Earlier today, heavily armed militants stormed an army camp in a town near Jammu, triggering a fierce gunfight that left four attackers and three army men dead and as many soldiers injured.
Police said that an unknown number of terrorists barged into the military camp near the headquarters of the Indian Army's 16 Corps.
