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.

However, after initial reluctance, the parliamentary panel on defence headed by BJP MP B C Khanduri was briefed by the Vice-Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Bipin Rawat.

    The PM is forgetting his own directives .. not to do chest thumping. Now it is time to prevent further infiltration and bring Kashmir to normalcy. By praising Israel he is antoganizing, Saudi , Iran and UAE etc.. In world diplomacy things need to be done in a calibrated and subtle way

    with the Surgical Strike, it is not just the LeT launch pads that was smashed but also the India's fear of China or Sinophobia. Until recently Chinese used to warn India every now and then about minor provocations. On Aug 27, 2016 an influential Chinese think tank has warned India that China will have to get involved if any Indian plot disrupts the $46 billion CPEC. A day after China warned India over CPEC in restive Balochistan, Baloch and Sindhi leaders protested outside the Chinese emby in London. China had also warned against deploying BrahMos missile in Arunachal Pradesh. On 06 Dec 2012, China warned India to stop oil exploration in the South China Sea. In July 2013, a hawkish PLA General warned India against provoking new trouble ahead of visits to Beijing by India’s Defense Minister A.K. Antony and stan’s PM Nawaz Sharif. Chinese troops were entering Indian territory when India's Defense Minister is on his way to China for a visit. This reflected very badly on the working of our intelligence system as well as that of our External Affairs and Defense Ministries
