Punjab Congress leader calls for “limited retaliatory action” against Pakistan
Punjab Congress chief Amarinder Singh today demanded that India must go for "limited retaliatory action" against Pakistan for "abetting" and sponsoring the attack" on an Army camp in Uri of Jammu and Kashmir.
"While the nature and type of retaliation should be decided by the Army, it must at no cost let the perpetrators of the attack go unpunished," he said.
Speaking to mediapersons after flagging off 13 campaign vehicles here, Amarinder said that though he is a strong advocate of people-to-people contact as common men on both sides want peace and cordial relationship, that does not mean "our Army should let the killing of our soldiers go unpunished."
"It is a question of maintaining the morale of our Army and that is non-negotiable," he said.
Eighteen army men were killed when militants attacked an Army camp in Uri in Kashmir on Sunday morning, drawing outrage in the country.
