Today, Home Minister Rajnath Singh is chairing a meeting to review the internal security post the strikes. Singh said that all attempts are being taken by the Indian government to ensure the release of an Indian soldier, who inadvertently crossed the border into Pakistan. The Home Minister said that the government has taken note of the reports which stated that an Indian soldier is in Pakistan’s captivity.

PM Narendra Modi held a meeting with the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) on Thursday which further paved way for the big revelation by the Indian Army DGMO Ranbir Singh that surgical strikes were carried out on the LoC. As soon as the news broke, the nation went into a mode of celebration with praise pouring in for the PM.

The meeting chaired by the home minister is being held in Delhi. According to TV reports, Home Minister Rajnath Singh has said that the Indian government is making every possible attempt to secure the captured soldier’s release from Pakistan.

The Union Minister will look into the present situation and discuss the course of action to be taken henceforth. With the PM’s promise to the nation that the sacrifices of the martyrs won’t go in vain, more action can be expected on the frontiers and the same strategy might be a point of discussion in the meeting today.

 

After the surgical strikes were started by the Indian Army, villages along the Punjab border and J&K border are being evacuated considering the security of the residents. J&K areas like Samba and RS Pura, which come under the Army regiments are also being evacuated as the Center assesses the possible dangers from Pakistan in retaliation.

Over 1000 villages around the 10 km territory in Punjab have also been evacuated with people being shifted to Gurudwaras, Schools and Colleges.

With such a strong reaction coming from India, Pakistan will again go on a ceasefire violation spree as expected and the Indian Army is making sure to fight tooth and nails after the grave Uri attacks.
