NEW DELHI – Former defence minister of India who is now the Chief Minister of Goa Manohar Parrikar stated Saturday that it took 15 months to Indian Army for preparing for the ‘surgical strike’ inside the Pakistan border along Line of Control (LoC).
Parrikar was quoted by Times of India newspaper as saying that “We started preparations for the September 29  surgical strike on June 9 – exactly 15 months prior to the event. We started planning for any eventuality at least 15 months in advance.”
It is worth mentioning here that not only Pakistan but the world rubbished bogus Indian claims of the surgical strike due to lack of proofs.
Pakistan termed India’s tall claims of ‘surgical strikes’ against ‘militant sanctuaries’ in Azad Kashmir as ‘illusion’. The Pakistani military had also taken a group of journalists on a tour to the region where New Delhi claimed it had carried out a ‘surgical strike’.
