Rally behind PM in post-surgical strike: State NBMM leader
GUWAHATI, Oct 8: Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Mahasabha (NBMM) State working president Col (retd) Bijay Sinha, who is also the chairman of Gokulanda Gitiswami Trust, Guwahati, has appealed to all in the country to rally behind Prime Minister rendra Modi for tiol interest in the post-retaliatory surgical strike on terrorists’ hideouts in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) by Indian commandos. The surgical strike came after 11 days of terrorists from Pakistan killing as many as 18 Indian soldiers at Uri in Jammu and Kashmir.
In a statement issued to the press today, Col (retd) Sinha said: “Uri attack by terrorists from Pakistan and its retaliatory surgical strike by 25 Indian commandos have brought to the light some valuable scores by Prime Minister rendra Modi and his Cabinet over their Pakistan counterparts on many fronts, including opinion-building on India’s fight against terrorism, at the intertiol level. In the first place, India was in the need of having taught Pakistan a lesson for the latter’s repeated interference in India’s sovereignty through aiding and abetting terrorists. Unlike his predecessors, Prime Minister rendra Modi took a bold decision to carry out the surgical strikes against the terrorists launch pads in PoK. As planned, the precision surgical strikes destroyed as many as seven terrorists’ bases in PoK in a four-hour-long operation exactly 11 days after the Uri attack, and came back to India safe. Right from UN General Assembly (UNGA) session where Pakistan Prime Minister waz Sharief had raised the Kashmir issue and showered praise on a slain terrorist leader the war over Kashmir reached its peak. In her speech at UNGA, Indian Exterl Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj exposed each and wrong step trodden by Pakistan at the intertiol forum. She was successful in sidelining Pakistan on the issue of aiding and abetting terrorism at the interl level. Emboldened by world opinion, the Prime Minister took the bold decision and set a record.”
“However, of late there has been a suicidal politicking on the surgical strike, led by the Congress party, the main Opposition party in Indian Parliament. Even the veracity of the surgical strike is questioned, as though they have been swayed by the Pakistan’s denial of any such surgical strike by any Indian force taking place in Pakistan territory. I, on behalf of the Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Mahasabha (NBMM) and the Gokulanta Gitiswami Trust, besides being a retired army officer, appealed to all in the country to rally behind Prime Minister rendra Modi for our tiol interest. In such a circumstance, none of us should air any comments that may dampen the morale of Indian Army. We should respect their supreme sacrifices. The Indian Prime Minister’s numerous scores on this issue will be remembered for generations.”
