Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday asked his ministerial colleagues and BJP leaders to refrain from chest-thumping about the "surgical strikes" carried out by the Indian Army and said only those authorised to make public statements must speak on the issue, informed sources said.

The Prime Minister's advice comes amid criticism of the government by political parties for taking "mileage" and trying to politicise the strikes.

Modi on Wednesday chaired a meeting of the cabinet and also of the Cabinet Committee on Security.

The CCS meeting was held in the wake of continued tension along the India-Pakistan border.

The situation has been tense on the India-Pakistan border since the September 18 attack on an army camp in Uri town of Jammu and Kashmir which left 19 soldiers dead. India has blamed Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad group for the attack.
