New Delhi: The surgical strikes across the Line of Control in 2016 was a message that India would not tolerate terrorists in the garb of intruders and the act of killing soldiers will not go unpunished, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said here on Friday. Participating in the ‘Parakram Parv’ event, marking the second anniversary of the military action across the LoC, on the lawns of India Gate here, she said it was out in the open that all the terrorist launch pads were cleared in the surgical strikes carried out in the aftermath of the Uri terror attack. “On the night of 28-29, Indian armed forces proved to this world that there is a very clear way in which we will show our strength to say that we shall not tolerate terrorists in the garb of intruders and creating havoc at our borders, at least hoping to create,” Sitharaman said. “We showed for the cowardly act of killing soldiers who were in their bases (at Uri), India shall not sit and watch the whole thing. We proved to them that it shall not go unpunished. And when it shall not go unpunished, what is the action we would take. (IANS)
