While whole nation has been gripped over debate on surgical strikes, Prime MInister Narendra Modi has asked his ministers to avoid creating a frenzy over it.
PTI reported that during a cabinet meeting, he supposedly made it clear to his ministerial colleagues that only authorised people should speak on the issue of surgical strikes and one should avoid speaking out-of-turn.
His remarks came after many people including Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal demanded proof of the cross-LoC raids.
It is reported that the BJP and experts are against disclosing details of the operation by the Special Forces.
Meanwhile, Union minister Hansraj Ahir said that it was for the Prime Minister to decide whether the footage should be made public or not.
“The PM will take a decision on whether to release the video handed over to the government by the Army. It is unfortunate to indulge in politics over the surgical strikes. This hasmaligned the image of the Army ,” he said.
According to NDTV sources, PM Modi and BJP president Amit Shah do not want a political escalation, with intelligence that almost 100 more terrorists are lined up to cross the Line of Control and launch attacks in India.
