"The denial of Pakistan about such like operation conducted by Indian army across the border can be understood by the fact that Pakistan government and its army do not want their ego and prestige dented, particularly when its army chief is due to retire", BJP state Spokesperson, Virender Gupta said.

India conducted surgical strikes across LoC on September 29 and organized a press conference headed by Director General of Military Operations (DGMO) Lt Gen Ranbir Singh where he briefed the media with details regarding the strikes.

The announcement was followed by significant chaos in Pakistan with its army and ruling government issuing different statements.

While the army accepted the fact that such strikes were conducted by India, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif denied it outrightly.

The contradiction was evident from the fact that while Pakistan Army Chief General Raheel Sharif said that his country's army will give "a befitting response to any misadventure", Sharif stated that no such surgical strike was conducted.

Raheel also accused India of tweeking the facts regarding casualties on Indian side.

Calling out Pakistan on its denial, the BJP spokesperson said that the surgical strikes carried out by Indian army across the Line of Control on seven launch pads of terrorist and killing about 50 of them was a laudable exercise avenging Uri terror attack.

Gupta also condemned the statements of the Kashmiri leaders, particularly of Congress and National Conference, who called for peace on the borders and Indo-Pak dialogue to resolve Kashmir issue.

These Kashmiri leaders need to address Pakistan asking it to stop terrorist activities instead of giving sermons to India and its leadership, he said.
