Minister of State Jitendra Singh on Sunday lauded the Indian Army for their exemplary retaliatory action across the Line of Control (LoC), while asserting that it assures “we are on the right track.”

Speaking to ANI in Srinagar, Singh said, “As far as we have observed travelling along the border areas and meeting the border people, we see the morale is very high, because they bear testimony to the fact that the kind of retaliatory action which is being witnessed has never been witnessed. We are on the right track.”

On Saturday, the Indian Army announced that 13 armed intruders were killed in the 96 hours, as relentless operations were underway to thwart Pakistan’s attempts to upsurge terror in Kashmir. “The sinister designs of Pakistan army to push-in multiple groups of armed intruders across the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir continue to be defeated by proactive operations being carried out,” the Indian Army said in a statement.

Relentless operations mounted by troops have successfully intercepted groups of armed intruders all along the LoC in Gurez, Machhil, Naugam and Uri sectors leading to elimination of 13 armed intruders in 96 hours. This includes groups of four and three armed intruders, who were tracked and eliminated in the Machhil and Naugam sectors respectively on Thursday.

Since then, the operations in Uri and Gurez sectors have further progressed. Five armed intruders have been killed in Uri so far and one intruder has been killed in the Gurez Sector close to the LoC. “The explosives, inflammable material, arms and ammunition recovered from the armed intruders indicate Pakistan’s designs to orchestrate high profile terror incidents targeting innocent civilian population and security forces during the holy month of Ramzan,” the statement added.

    In my opinion the best part of Indias foreign policy is towards stan not with other nations. The reason are many. According to me, we must have an unpredictable policy towards our unpredictable terror state neighbor. We should never ever talk to them until the cross border terrorism stops. NOW Kil 12 terrorists in 96 hours. SUPER ACHIEVEMENT OF Indian MILITARY. If you prize the damage index per Terrorists it could be 2-10 Crore on an average .A loss of 130 crore to Pakstan means it is a huge success. If you add the investment cost(capital/ins utional/military and international damage/loss of re tion cost etc ) from PAK side the cost of one terrorists could go up to 100 Crores even. The worst form of Indias policy towards a militant/Terror pak is default ( mean near zero happening at ground level) state approach. I have only praise for this government and its policy since its inception in 2014 towards stan. This is only an opinion.
