Panaji: Ailing Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on Tuesday congratulated the Indian Air Force for its “daring operations”, in view of the early morning strike at the Jaish-e-Mohammad terror camp in Pakistan.
Soon after he was discharged from hospital late on Tuesday evening, Parrikar tweeted: “I salute the #IndianAirForce for its daring operations. It is a testimony to the IAF’s unparalleled strike capabilities. The new India under Shri @narendramodi ji believes in its forces, and makes no compromise on terrorism and national security”.
Parrikar served as Defence Minister from 2014-17, during which the twin ‘surgical strikes’ were carried out along the country’s eastern and western borders.
