PM Narendra Modi on Thursday presided over a Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) meeting on the prevailing tense situation along the Line of Control (LoC). Rajnath Singh, Ajit Doval, Arun Jaitley, S Jaishankar, Manohar Parrikar, Army Chief Dalbir Singh and other senior officials were present at the meeting.

This meeting is significant as the government has launched a diplomatic offensive against Pakistan after the Uri attack, in which 18 soldiers were killed by Jaish-e-Muhammad terrorists. New Delhi has blamed Pakistan for the dastardly attack.

Action is not taken after making announcements,” he had said. “It is a very serious issue… The matter cannot be handled just like that,” Rijiju added.
