New Delhi, September 19: In order to capsulate brunt of the deadliest terror attack on Indian Army encampment in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri town on Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has asked to collect “clear evidence of Pakistan’s complicity” and present those to “isolate Pakistan at all the international forums.” As an immediate step, PM has also asked the officials to refrain from “reacting emotionally” in the high-level meeting held here on Monday.
The meeting was a step ahead in a direction to seek a “befitting reply” to Pakistan fuelled terror inside the country. Earlier Home Minister Rajnath Singh was briefed about the situation along the border and LoC by the key officials. Soon after, he briefed the PM. All the key Ministers including Home Minister Rajnath, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Defence Minster Manohar Parrikar, National Security Adviser Ajit Doval, Army Chief Gen. Dalbir Singh Suhag and other senior officials attended the meeting.
According to the sources, the government has decided to use a concerted global effort to diplomatically isolate Pakistan as an immediate step. India has decided to use clear evidence of Pakistan’s involvement at all major global forays, including the upcoming United Nation General Assembly.
The use of “incendiary” ammunition by the terrorists was also the topic of discussion in the meeting. For, incendiary ammunition is found with army establishments only. This also points towards the fact that Pakistan Army provides ammunition to terrorists to bring mayhem in India.
PM Modi has also asked security and investigative agencies to gather clear evidence to mark the Pakistani involvement in the Uri attack and develop a strong case at International foray.
The other agenda on the list were, India should tackle the situation carefully and act without getting into the trap of emotions, considering both the short- and long-term implications. We need not give reactions to Pakistan’s lies and denial for these charges.
Speaking to reporters, Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju said: Everything is in front of the people. We must not give much attention to Pakistan’s reaction. We will take our steps carefully.
