Pak isolated after Pulwama militant attack: Gen V K Singh

Shimla, Feb 18: Pakistan has been isolated internationally after Pulwama militant attack this was stated by Union Minister of State for External Affairs General VK Singh while addressing media persons here Monday.
He said that more than 40 nations have issued strong statements against the neighbouring country. This is a big success of our external and diplomatic policy that the number of countries supporting India’s stand is higher than the number of the countries which had supported India even after 26/11 attack in Mumbai, he added.
Responding to several questions, the Minister said ‘India will choose time and place in retaliation to recent militant attack on CRPF convoy as it will be properly planned and well thought of.’ ‘What is being planned, I don’t know. But as former Army chief, I can tell you any war, war like or punitive action must be planned for achieving success. It should be a cold act and nothing is to be done in a hurry.’ he added. To further questions, General Singh said ‘Even Osama (Bin Laden) was not killed in a day despite the fact USA had known he was hidden in Pakistan.’ The Minister said ‘Let us wait and watch and support our forces.’
Responding to a question regarding intelligence failure and connivance of some insiders behind Pulwama attack, he said the entire matter is being analysed. The Minister said it should also be analysed why militant activities increased in south Kashmir since 2012 after a lull of several years. On being asked regarding abolition of Article 370, he said
‘Ask this question from all the (political) parties.
It cannot be abolished until supported by other political parties.’ He came to Shimla to launch BJP’s campaign ‘Bharat Ke Mann Ki Baat, Modi Ke Saath’ in Himachal Pradesh views from the public regarding their expectations will be taken from all the 68 Assembly segments of the state under this campaign in the coming days, he said adding that some of the important views would be included in BJP’s manifesto for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
