AGARTALA, Sep 29 (TIWN): Whereas Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has claimed 619 terrorists in J&K were killed in last four years but data says above 800 Indian soldiers gave up lives under Modi Govt.

Mamata Banerjee led Bengal Govt clearly denied the proposed celebration mentioning it's a National mourning day, when so many soldiers of India were killed. 

However, Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb said, before surgical strike India was considered as a 'Third World Country' but now India is just like Russia, America.

CM also claimed, terror in Kashmir has been stopped whereas Kashmir is now under Governor's rule. 

 The Congress on Friday accused the Narendra Modi government of politicising the 2016 surgical strikes and alleged that the BJP was using "soldiers as a tool to garner votes".

The party made the comment on the day "Parakram parv" is being observed by the Central government to mark the second anniversary of the surgical strikes carried out on the intervening night of September 28-30 across the Line of Control (LOC) on terror launch pads. 

The Congress said the 2016 attack was not the first time that India had undertaken surgical strikes and listed a number of such attacks carried out in the past. 

"We are proud that our forces have successfully conducted multiple ‘surgical strikes' over last two decades, particularly post the year 2000 -- January 21, 2000 (Nadala Enclave, across the Neelam River); September 18, 2003 (Baroh Sector, Poonch); June 19, 2008 (Bhattal Sector, Poonch); August 30-September 1, 2011 (Sharda Sector, across Neelam River Valley in Kel); January 6, 2013 (Sawan Patra checkpost); July 27-28, 2013 ( Nazapir Sector); August 6, 2013 (Neelam Valley); January 14, 2014 (Army Chief, General Bikram Singh's statement qua surgical strike on December 23, 2013); September 28-29, 2016 (DGMO's statement)," Congress leader Randeep Surjewala said.
