Didn’t sleep all night, waited for phone to ring: Modi recalls surgical strikes
New Delhi, Sep 29: On the third anniversary of the surgical strike, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that he could not sleep all night.
That night on September 28 scripted a golden story of our soldier's valor who carried out the surgical strike, Modi told BJP leaders and workers who had gathered to welcome him from his week-long trip to the United States.
I could not sleep all night and I waited for the phone to ring, he said while adding that he bowed to the valour and courage of the soldiers.
The Indian Army had carried out a surgical strike on seven terror launch pads across the Line of Control. The strike was carried out to avenge the Uri attack.
