In an address to the media today post a Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) meeting by PM Narendra Modi, the DGMO said that the motive of the operation was to hit out at the terrorists who were planning to infiltrate into our territory. The revelation comes at a time when the Modi govt has been facing strong backlash for the inefficiency at curbing terrorism across the border that has been claiming the lives of Indian soldiers.

According to sources, two Pakistani soldiers were killed in the firing as India responded to the unprovoked ceasefire violation by Pakistan on LOC on Thursday. DGMO Singh also said, ”We will ease the menace of terrorism”, thus showing a positive way out of the present grim situation.

As soon as the DGMO told this, the social media went into a tizzy with reactions from Twitterati pouring in to show their support towards the same. Indians agreed that this was called for with the hashtag #ModiPunishesPak trending as an approval for the action taken by the Army.

The reactions showed the faith in the Indian Prime Minister being restored with some even claiming that after this, BJP might just sweep the upcoming polls in Uttar Pradesh and Punjab.
