Goa Chief Minister Condemns Uri Attack

Panaji: Goa Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar on Sunday condemned the terror attack on an army camp in Uri in Jammu and Kashmir, in which 17 soldiers were killed.

He also asked the central government to respond to the attack.

“What has happened is most unfortunate. It should not have happened and I condemn it. I think the government of India needs to be little more offensive in this regard… Government should see that adequate measures are adopted to see that such things don’t happen in the future,” Mr Parsekar told reporters in Panaji.

Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, who had to cut short his Goa visit, is expected to arrive in Uri later Sunday.
