Audio Bulletin: Former army officer DS Hooda calls surgical strikes 'overhyped'

Updated 08 Dec 2018 08:36 PM

Days after marking the second anniversary of the surgical strike carried out by the Indian Army across the Line of Control (LoC), retired Lt Gen DS Hooda opened up about the strike and said that the hype around the operation was unwarranted. While speaking during a panel discussion on the topic, 'Role of Cross-Border Operations and Surgical Strikes,' on the first day of Military Literature Festival 2018, Gen Hooda said that was natural to have an initial euphoria over the success but the constant hype around the operation was unwarranted. Gen Hooda was the Northern Army commander when the surgical strikes were carried out on September 29, 2016, across the LoC as a response to a terrorist attack in Uri earlier that month.
