New Delhi: Like the surgical strikes, the planning too was surgical. The real countdown for the surgical strikes across LoC in Pok, that destroyed 7 terror camps and killed 40 terrorists, began onWednesday evening with the cancellation of the dinner organised by the Indian Coast Guard, NSA Ajit Doval, Raksha Mantri Manohar Parrikar and Army Chief General Dalbir Singh Suhaag were to the attend the dinner. Dinner cancelled, the trio headed to the 'War Room'. At 7pm the three entered the 'War Room', with Boss Narendra Modi in loop. The trio remained huddled in the 'War Room' till 6am on Thursday. The three were monitoring and coordinating the plan--minute by minute. Boss was awake too. Mission complete-- 7 terror camps, 40 terrorists killed- they came out with a pat from the 'Boss'. Feather in the cap was-no Indian casualties on the Indian side. Entire planning was done by NSA Doval
It was about a week ago that India decided on surgical strikes. The PM was briefed, he okayed the plan. Then NSA Doval got down to the surgical planning of the strikes. Under the plan, the Prime Minister was made to visit the 'War Room' three times this month to make him understand the details of the plan.
