Leaders of different political parties today congratulated the Indian Air Force (IAF) at an all-party meeting on operation targeting a terrorist camp in Pakistan and assured their support in checking terror. Congress said that it will support security forces in their endeavour to finish terrorism coming into India from outside.
After the meeting, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, who presided over the meeting, said, “I am happy that all members congratulated Indian Air Force and supported all investigations initiated against terror attacks.” “I am happy that all parties in one voice praised the security forces and supported the Government’s anti-terror operations,” she added.
Swaraj also informed the parties that she had spoken to US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo over the air strikes as well. At a time when all eyes are on India, it is important for the country to garner as much international support as it can.
Those attended the meeting included CPI(M)’s Sitaram Yechury, TMC’s Derek O’Brian, Omar Abdullah of National Conference and Bhartruhari Mahtab from BJD. Union ministers Rajnath Singh and Arun Jaitley, both members of the Cabinet Committee on Security like Swaraj, were also present in the meeting. NCP’s Praful Patel, BSP’s Satish Mishra and BJP ally Ramdas Athawale also attended the meeting.
