Surgical strikes were thrice carried in Pak when congress ruled, says Antony


THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Indian Army had carried surgical strikes during the tenure of the former UPA Government, said former defence minister A K Antony. It was thrice conducted in Pakistan, said Antony. Usually, such military secrets are not revealed and that is why these incidents did not go out of the way, he said.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is violating all these and is politicising the Indian army, Antony said after releasing the election manifesto of Shashi Tharoor, the UDF candidate of Thiruvananthapuram. Antony himself revealed that during his tenure as defence minister, surgical strikes were carried in Pakistan.
