Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Wednesday said surgical strikes across the LoC reflect firm will power of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and valour of armed forces. “The surgical strikes were a result of firm will power of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and valour of our forces,” the Chief Minister said in an interview to PTI.

On some political parties demanding proof of the Army’s action, Chouhan said defence and security issues should be above politics.

“Demanding a proof of it is not correct principally as well as practically. Such proofs are never given. Those who are demanding proof are not aware of the consequences of disclosing the details of this military operation,” he said.

Surgical strikes were carried out on seven terror launch pads across the LoC on the intervening night of September 28 and 29, with the Army saying it had inflicted “significant casualties” on terrorists preparing to infiltrate from PoK, days after Modi warned Uri attack would not go unpunished.
