Manohar Parrikar’s role as defence minister, albeit for a period of just 3 years, was memorable as he played a key role in planning the 2016 surgical strike against terror launch pads in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK).

The surgical strike operation was carried out 10 days after a deadly terrorist attack on soldiers at Indian Army Brigade Headquarters in J&K’s Uri town.

At least 38 terrorists and 2 Pakistani soldiers were killed in the counter operation led by the Indian Army; seven terror launch pads were also destroyed in the operation.

The then defence minister Manohar Parrikar played an instrumental role in the surgical strikes carried out by the Indian Army in the aftermath of the 2016 Uri attack which claimed the lives of 18 Indian soldiers.
