Days after India’s surgical strikes in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (POK), the state BJP’s Uttar Pradesh unit is planning to accord a “warm reception” to Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar who is set to visit here tomorrow.

“Parrikar, a Rajya Sabha member from the state, arrives in state capital on Thursday and party cadres will accord him a warm reception,” a BJP spokesman said.

“The workers are upbeat after the success of the Indian Army and it is natural for them to express themselves by according a warm reception to all those connected with it, and the local unit has drawn up a grand welcome programme,” the spokesman added.

Besides public reception at different spots on way to the party office from the airport in the afternoon, Parrikar would attend a reception at a school auditorium in the evening. He is expected to return to New Delhi later in the day.

        After the 1971 war, Indira hi did not capitalize on it for any political gain within India, even though she had dismembered stan. BJP talk, with a surgical strike, looks like mere bravado. Shame on any party that tries to utilize national defense for political gain.

              Parikar and Modi should not politicize or rejoice and take credit for this operation. The situation with stan is not over, it is ever lasting battle. One has to be very shrewd and tactical managing this continuing battle against the next door deadly terrorists.
