'Six Surgical Strikes Under Cong Rule'

Former Prime Minister
Rejecting criticism that its governments in the past were soft on terror, the Congress on Thursday claimed that six surgical strikes were conducted during former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s regime from 2004 to 2014.

“Six surgical strikes were conducted during Manmohan Singh government. One was conducted on June 19, 2008 in Bhattal Sector in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch, one from August 30-September 1, 2011 in Sharda Sector across Neelam River Valley in Kel,” Congress leader Rajiv Shukla told reporters at the AICC briefing.

“One surgical strike was carried out on January 6, 2013 at Sawan Patra checkpost; one on July 27 and July 28, 2013 in Nazapir Sector; August 6, 2013 in Neelam Valley; and one on January 14, 2014,” he added.

Shukla further stated that two surgical strikes were carried out when Atal Bihari Vajpayee was the Prime Minister–one on January 21, 2000 in Nadala Enclave across the Neelam River and second on September 18, 2003 in Baroh Sector in Poonch.
