Needling the Centre over Pakistan’s offensive and mutilation of the body of an Indian soldier, Shiv Sena on Thursday said the Union government, which took credit for the surgical strike across LoC, should now admit its failure to bring an end to killings at the border.

“In the case of demonetisation, the government is coming out with new proof that would make people patriots. But it is not ready to talk on the activities of Pakistan at the border. When will the government show its patriotism by avenging the killings and beheadings of Indian soldiers?” an editorial in party mouthpiece ‘Saamana’ said.

After the surgical strike Pakistani activities have only increased and deaths of soldiers have doubled, it said.

In spite of Defence minister Manohar Parrikar’s tough talk, three soldiers have been killed at the border, it said.

“If the government took political mileage out of the surgical strike, it should now accept its failure as well,” the NDA ally said.

“If the Prime Minister (Narendra Modi) has made everyone come out on the streets with one decision (of demonetisation), he needs to take a similar decision one evening to crush Pakistan,” it said.

In a cross-LoC attack by suspected Pakistani terrorists on Tuesday, three Indian soldiers were killed, with body of one of them being mutilated, after which the Indian Army launched a massive counter assault along the Line of Control (LoC) in north Kashmir.
