Indian Army carried out “countless surgical strikes” in past: Cong MP

A akhter / New Delhi

gaurav gaogoiYoung Congress MP from Assam Gaurav Gogoi has questioned the rationale behind Government’s continued claim about the uniqueness of the “historical surgical strikes” against the terror launch pads last year and said Indian forces had carried out such attacks “countless” times in the past.

“Our brave soldiers have triumphed whenever they have been tested, whether it is in 1947, 1965, 1971, 1999 and the countless surgical strikes that they have done,” Mr Gogoi said. He was speaking in Lok Sabha on the budget for Ministry of Defence on Friday.

“The government should be sensitive to soldiers complaining about poor food instead of doubting their mental health”, he stressed.

“My only request to all political parties is to remember that the Armed Forces are of the nation and they secure our boundaries. It is not for the bragging rights of any party during election season,” Mr Gogoi said, taking pot shots at the BJP-led dispensation.

He also asked for greater recruitment of  women in armed forces and starting new Sainik Schools to attract youth

Congress sources said the hype being created by BJP on the surgical strikes carried out in September last year will be short lived.
