Mumbai : The Shiv Sena has hit out at the Centre over the terror attack on the army base in Nagrota, in which seven defence personnel were killed. The Sena on Wednesday dubbed it as a “complete intelligence failure” and urged the Prime Minister to initiate strict action against Pakistan.
“It doesn’t seem to be stopping. We need to take very strong action against Pakistan. I think one surgical strike was not enough. And the more astonishing and surprising facts are that the Army base camps are being targeted now. So, where is the intelligence, where is our information system? It is a complete failure. Once these attacks used to be on civilians, but now they are targeting army bases and camps,” Shiv Sena leader Manisha Kayande said. “After Pathankot, this is the third attack, so it’s a complete intelligence failure and the government has to take stringent action against it,” she added.
Echoing similar sentiment, her party colleague Sanjay Raut called on the government to up the ante against Pakistan and stop gloating over the lone surgical strike.
“Ever since the Uri attack, Pakistan has unleashed a string of attacks on us, while we are still beating the drum about the lone surgical strike. Yes, we did carry out a surgical strike but clearly that has not silenced Pakistan. One mere surgical strike does not amount to teaching Pakistan a lesson,” Raut added.
