Salman Khurshid Backs Chidambaram’s Claim Of Carrying Our Surgical Strikes During UPA II

In the wake of the escalation of a war of words between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress following a revelation that the Indian Army had conducted a surgical strike on Pakistani military outposts earlier in 2011, former external affairs minister Salman Khurshid on Monday said his former cabinet colleague P.Chidambaram made this disclosure to put the record straight as the incumbent regime was trying to create an impression that the UPA did nothing in its tenure.
