The meeting discussed a host of issues. Top security officials have advised the government against sharing proof or making public videos of the surgical strike. The army which had shared a video of the strike with the government last week, has said that it would be the Prime Minister who would take a final call on whether the footage could be shared or not.

At the meeting, the National Security Advisor Ajit Doval told Modi that Pakistan is planning a fresh wave of infiltrations of terrorists into India.

The NSA also said that there is credible information gathered through intelligence inputs that several terror launch pads have come up. Terrorists were being moved into these launch pads across the border in batches. They pose a grave threat to security, the top official also said at the meeting.

It was also said that Pakistan has been resorting to heavy firing along the border area. This is not being done as a retaliatory measure, but to facilitate the movement of terrorists. They want to get as many terrorists as possible into India before winter sets in, the Prime Minister and the Home Minister were also told at the meeting.
