Don’t want another surgical strike from government: Chidambaram

New Delhi: Congress leader and former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram on Friday said that one thing he doesn’t want from the government is another “surgical strike”.

To a query whether there will be another surgical strike, Chidambaram quipped: “I am saying is that expression ‘surgical strike’ should put all surgeons to shame.

“I do not know what the government does. Unless we have numbers close to the budget, we can’t even speculate the how much the government has to do the things that may want to do.

“One thing I do not want the government to do is to think of another ‘Surgical Strike’.”
