Surgical Strikes 2.0? Rumours abound after Rajnath Singh hints at strong action by Indian Army

There have been rumours floating around that the Indian Army might have conducted a second ‘surgical strike’ in Pakistan occupied Kashmir inflicting severe damages on the Pakistani side.

It is also being reported that speculation is running high in absence of any confirmation and movement has been observed at the Line of Control.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh himself said today that ‘something big has happened 2-3 days back’. “Something has happened, I won’t disclose it now. Whatever has happened, has happened for the good. Trust me, something big has happened two-three days ago. And you will also see what happens in future,” Rajnath said referring to the killing of Narendra Singh, the BSF Jawan who was brutally murdered by Pakistan a few days ago.

“I have told the BSF jawans, don’t fire the first bullet, as they are our neighbours. But if they fire the first one, don’t count the number of bullets you fire back,” Rajnath added.

On the 24th of September, Army Chief Bipin Rawat had asserted that there was a need for another surgical strike.  “I believe there is a need for one more action (surgical strike). But I would not want to disclose how we want to do it,” he said in an interview to India Today news channel that was telecast on Monday.

It is pertinent to mention that as per reports, Pakistani Army Chief Qamar Javed Bajwa had called on newly elected Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday to discuss “security and regional stability situation”. It was the third such meeting since Imran Khan took office. There is a strong possibility that the government may issue an official confirmation of the strikes on the second anniversary of the surgical strikes conducted in 2016.
