The Congress has supported the surgical strikes carried out by the Indian army on terrorist launch pads across Line of Control (LoC) on Thursday.
"The Congress wholeheartedly supports the surgical strike on terror (launch) pads in PoK (Pakistan occupied Kashmir) by Indian Army. Salute the valour of our armed forces," Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said.
Senior party leader Ahmed Patel, too, applauded the Indian army for undertaking surgical strikes on terror launch pads.
"We stand completely behind our Armed Forces," he said.
The military action by India came 11 days after terrorists killed 18 Indian soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir.
