Pathankot security operation most successful: BJP
Slamming Congress after it termed the Pathankot terror attack as a "grave security lapse", BJP said the security operation at the air base was "most successful" and drew a parallel with the Mumbai attack in which terrorist killed over 164 people despite "intelligence inputs" about its likelihood.
Hitting back at the Congress after it questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Pakistan policy, BJP said Modi "conveyed the nation's anger" to his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif when the latter called him up following the attack and reminded it that there was no such response from Pakistan after Mumbai attack.
"Modi has sought time-bound and serious action from Pakistan. Sharif assured him of cooperation. There was no response from Pakistan following 26/11 terror attack in Mumbai. The operation in Pathankot was a most successful exercise against a fidayeen strike.
"Congress has made a reference to Mumbai attack. So many people were killed then despite intelligence inputs being received about the terror strike. It has no moral right to question the government. Its charges only show its mental bankruptcy," BJP secretary Shrikant Sharma said.
