The government's decision to celebrate the second anniversary of the surgical strikes of 2016, has brought in mixed reactions from across the Fauji fraternity and the political spectrum. While some have asked why wasn't the first anniversary celebrated, the others opposed to Mr Modi's NDA government say this is another pre 2019 election gimmick. But most do not dispute the fact that it is about time that all our military achievements are remembered. But for Pakistan the only option was to show it is still unrepentant. So it violated the ceasefire on the LoC and tried to push in another group of terrorists under the cover of heavy firing in the Tangdhar sector of North Kashmir's Kupwara district. Though this attempt was repulsed successfully, it raises a few serious questions on how we could impose more penalties on this unrepentant rogue state on our western border. To begin with India could certainly increase the pressure on an already beleagured Pakistan, and the areas it can be put under pressure are many. Pakistan is reeling under a serious economic crisis within and facing increasing isolation diplomatically. It's only hope lies with China and Saudi Arabia. No wonder the Pak Army Chief visited China to assure support to Beijing for the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) that is facing increasing criticism within Pakistan. But it is the China-Pak nexus and Beijing's use of the Pakistan to keep India under pressure, that is India's long term security concern.
