After a lot of heat from Congress over the credibility of India's surgical strike against the terror camps in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) India's armed forces have given the go ahead to the government to release and use the video footage of the surgical strikes.
However, the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) has the final say.
According to a report in Economic Times, top army officers, has said that the army is keen to release evidence that will answer to those who allege that strikes did not take place. This decision was made in the wake of Pakistan's military establishment which negated the strikes.
Since then, some Opposition politicians in India, including Aam Aadmi Party's Arvind Kejriwal and Congress' Sanjay Nirupam, have asked for 'proof' of the strikes.
However, the release of the video depend upon the Paksitani response and whether it will increase the Indo-Pak tension by proving Pakistan Military claims wrong.
According to media reports, Indian army strategists and officials have claimed that they have enough proof of videos and even photos shot by both ground troops and unmanned aerial vehicles that were deployed to keep an ye on the operation.
Economic Times quoted a senior government official as saying, "There is no doubt at all that the strikes inflicted heavy damage. Proof is available with the government that clearly shows our troops engaging the targets effectively."
