Surgical strike fails to ‘deter’ militants, says Omar Abdullah
Asking the Centre to explain its Pakistan policy to the nation after seven army personnel were killed by terrorists in Nagrota, former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah claimed that surgical strike has failed to ‘deter’ militants.
“So on a day on which 7 of our brave soldiers lost their lives to terrorist bullets the government must explain its Pakistan policy to nation,” Omar wrote on Twitter late last night after the Nagrota attack.
“It is also true that terrorists are no more deterred from attacking our armed forces today than they were prior to the ‘surgical strikes’!” he wrote.
Jammu region witnessed by two terror attacks yesterday in which 7 army personnel, including two Major-rank officers, were killed and eight other security men were injured.
Omar, working president of National Conference, blasted at BJP saying “Regardless of what BJP spokespersons would have us believe, Pakistan is no more isolated internationally today than it was 6 months ago.”
