By Ians

New Delhi, Oct 4: The Congress on Tuesday asked the BJP-led government to not politicise the issue of surgical military strikes across the Line of Control (LoC) and asked it to counter the "malicious propaganda" by Pakistan denying surgical strikes had taken place.

The Congress reiterated that it totally supports the Indian armed forces on the surgical strikes.
