New Delhi, Feb 11: After heavily armed Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorists struck at an Army camp in Jammu and Kashmir’s Sunjuwan area, the Congress party on Saturday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to ‘personally supervise’ the operation. Speaking to reporters, Congress communications in-charge Randeep Surjewala said,”We appeal to the Prime Minister, whichever part of the world he is, to personally supervise the operation and ensure that these terrorists are gunned down and give the armed forces every possible help in this regard.”

“It was a matter of deep concern that 14 major terror attacks have taken place on the Army in Jammu and Kashmir since 2014, after the NDA government came to power. There have been 206 terror attacks in Jammu and Kashmir alone and 382 Army personnel were killed in the last four years. Fourteen soldiers have been killed in the last 31 days,” he added.

The Congress leader also recalled how PM Modi, as the then chief minister of Gujarat, had hit out at the UPA government even as anti-terror operations were underway during the 2008 Mumbai attacks. “Like Modiji, we will not make any political comment. We are with the government and the Army,” Surjewala stated. Notably, PM Modi is currently on a three-nation visit to Palestine, the United Arab Emirates and Oman.

Earlier on Saturday, a Junior Commissioned Officer (JCO) and a Non-Commissioned Officer were martyred after terrorists opened fire in the Sunjawan Army camp in Jammu. In retaliatory action, three terrorists were also killed. The operation is still underway.

In the attack, nine people, including five women and children were injured and two of them were admitted to hospital with critical injuries. In few minutes, 150 residential houses were evacuated. Operations will continue till all terrorists are arrested or killed, the Army said in a statement.
