The Congress Thursday came out with a list of six anti-terror surgical strikes carried out during the UPA rule, even as the BJP rubbished the claims on Saturday and said no such operations took place before the Modi government
The statement by army spokesman Major General Asif Ghafoor came hours after Swaraj said that no Pakistani soldier or civilian died in the air strike on a terror camp at Balakot in Pakistan in February.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the BJP's campaign in UP said his government had shown the courage to conduct a 'surgical strike' in all spheres, a day after announcing that India had demonstrated anti-satellite missile capability by shooting down a live satellite.
All pre-election talk of Narendra Modi and Amit Shah being cut down to size evaporated after the Lok Sabha elections were declared. But BJP's confidence to win majority on its own was backed by genius of a strategy, writes Anirban Ganguly
