Stepping up the ante on Pakistan, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Saturday said that missions like the Thursday’s surgical strikes on terror camps could be done again if the security of the country was challenged or jeopardised.
In his first statement after a special Indian Army term crossed the Line of Control into Pakistani-administered Kashmir and demolished seven launchpads of terrorists, Parrikar said that “anyone who casts an evil eye on the country would not be spared”.
Speaking at a function held to unveil statue of local hero Veer Chandra Singh Garhwali, Parrikar further said that Pakistan had been stunned into silence after the surgical strikes and was in a comatose condition. “Pakistan is like a patient who has been put under anaesthesia before an operation, It is in a state of coma” he said as people clapped in agreement.
The union minister also warned Pakistan that if it indulged in some misadventure, it will be given a befitting response.
Talking about Pakistan denying the surgical strikes, Parrikar said that Pakistan is doing so because it is not able to realise how and when Indian special forces went into PoK and completed their job.
“India does not want to capture any nation. When Lord Rama won Lanka, he gave it to Vibheeshana. We did the same in Bangladesh. If anyone harms India, then a befitting reply will be given” he said.
