The Congress on Tuesday said the government should formulate a concrete and comprehensive policy to deal with drone attacks by terror outfits based in Pakistan, in the backdrop of a drone bombing incident at an Air Force station in Jammu and Kashmir.
Surjewala tweeted, “Armed drone strike is a real threat to security forces and government establishments. The need of the hour is a credible and comprehensive policy and action, rather than amendments in circulars and rules, to deal with attacks by the notorious ISI-backed and terrorist organizations based in Pakistan.
He said, “Hope the BJP government is aware that ISI and terrorist groups based in Pakistan use Chinese ‘hexacopters’ and drones to drop weapons across the border and China has called them ‘CPEC’ (China-Pakistan Economic Economy). Corridor) has been presented to Pakistan for use.
The Congress general secretary also stressed that the government should be aware that China has sold 50 Wing Loong-2 armed drones to Pakistan for high altitude areas. Referring to some questions asked in Parliament, he said that the government must be aware that MPs have repeatedly asked questions on the issue of drone strikes.
Surjewala also said, “The entire nation stands with our security forces and the government to thwart such attacks.” But the Modi government should realize that instead of doing ‘headline management’, there is a need to take strategic advice from defense experts. Significantly, two bombs were dropped by a drone on the intervening night of Sunday and Monday at the Indian Air Force station in Jammu. This was the first such attack. Two people were injured in this incident.
