BSP chief Mayawati Friday congratulated the Army for “its successful surgical strikes inside Pakistan and keeping its promise made to the people after Uri attack”, but said the government’s permission for such strikes should have come soon after the Pathankot terror attack in January.

“By demolishing terror camps in LoC, the Army has fulfilled the promise made by it to the people of the country after the Uri attack,” Mayawati said in a statement here.

“Giving a go-ahead for Army action by the Modi government is a right but late move. It should have been done soon after the Pathankot attack in January this year. Perhaps it could have saved the lives of 19 jawans in Uri,” she added.
