PM to take fi­nal call on mil­i­tary op­tions

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - FRONT PAGE - Shishir Gupta let­ters@hin­dus­tan­times.com

The Naren­dra Modi gov­ern­ment is work­ing on a multi-pronged plan in­cor­po­rat­ing mil­i­tary op­tions in its post-Uri cam­paign against Pak­istan. The diplo­matic part of the plan has been launched at the United Na­tions with In­dia call­ing Pak­istan a ter­ror­ist state that poses a global threat.

New Delhi plans to in­ten­sify the diplo­matic ef­fort with Is­lam­abad’s tra­di­tional sup­port­ers in West Asia next by pro­vid­ing di­rect ev­i­dence of the in­volve­ment of a Pak­istan-based ter­ror group in the Uri at­tack.

South Block sources said a mil­i­tary ac­tion plan has been handed over to the gov­ern­ment by de­fence min­is­ter Manohar Par­rikar.

The de­ci­sion on its oper­a­tional­i­sa­tion is for Prime Min­is­ter Modi and his Cabi­net to take, they said.
