Haryana to organize state-level function to observe 'Surgical Strike Day'
Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar will be the chief guest at the function, an official spokesperson said today.
"It is a moment of pride, especially for Haryana, as every 10th soldier serving in the Indian Army belongs to the state," the spokesperson said.
In 2016, Army carried out surgical strikes on terrorist launchpads
"Various programs would be organized at all district headquarters of the state to commemorate this important day," the spokesperson said.
On September 29, 2016, Indian Army carried out "surgical strikes" on seven terrorist launchpads across the LoC as a response to an attack on its base in Uri earlier that month.
The Army had said its special forces inflicted "significant casualties" to terrorists.
