India carried out ‘surgical strikes’ on terror launch pads across LoC on the intervening night of September 28 and 29, inflicting “significant casualties” on terrorists and those who are trying to support them.
The Army action came days after the terror strike by Pakistan-based JeM on an Indian Army camp in Uri in Kashmir which left 19 Indian soldiers dead.
Refusing to comment further on the Army operation, Thackeray said he would put forth views in detail while speaking at the Sena’s annual Dussehra rally.
Earlier, the Sena in its mouthpiece ‘Saamana’, had taken veiled digs at Modi over India’s moves against Pakistan after the Uri attack and had said the neighbouring country’s PM, Nawaz Sharif, was showing off his “56-inch chest”.
The Sena had said that it feared that India had actually been isolated in the world with its efforts yielding little result other than mere “lip service” by global leaders.
In another editorial, the party had criticised Modi for launching a diplomatic attack on Pakistan after terrorists killed Indian Army jawans in Uri, saying the Centre must take action instead of indulging in a war of words with Pakistan.
