Modi under Pressure, Meets CCS
New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi who is under tremendous pressure to devise a fitting and viable response to the Pak sponsored terror attack at Uri army camp, met his senior ministers and military commanders who consist of CCS (Cabinet Committee on Security) on Wednesday and discussed various options. The outcome is yet to be known.
Pressure is building up on the government from various sections including politicians and former army officers to retaliate Pakistan with its own coin. Several options including air strikes and surgical operations to wipe out terror camps in POK are suggested. But some security experts disapprove the idea saying that India has never conducted such operations so far and it may run the risk of escalating into a full pledged war.
Other options under the debate include isolating Pakistan internationally, back channel talks with its army, and continuously highlighting its human rights violations in Balochistan and POK.
Meanwhile In an encounter in J&K’s Naugam region several terrorists were killed while they were trying to cross the LOC on Tuesday. One jawan died, 2 others critically injured in the operation.
According to the army sources, the large scale infiltration attempt involving more than a dozen terrorists, was foiled as they were trying to enter through Lachipura area of Baramulla district in Uri. Security forces are to continue combing operations in Naugam and Lachipura regions.
Pakistan Army violating the ceasefire fired incessantly at Indian Army positions in Uri for nearly 20 minutes, in a bid to provide a cover to the terrorists who were trying to cross over the LOC, the sources said.
According to the reports, earlier in a high-level meeting, PM Narendra Modi has given green signal to diplomatically isolate Pakistan at every international groupings. On Monday Army said that it reserves the right to respond to any cross-border firings and terrorist attacks at the time and place of their own choosing.
