- CPI(M) urged Centre to continue with "diplomatic" moves with Pak

The party's general secretary, Sitaram Yechury, also urged the Centre to ensure the safety and security of the people from cross-border terrorism.
"We have been following the operation of the Indian Army.
We hope that now, incidents like the one at Pathankot and the recent one at Uri will not recur. We feel that the government should ensure the safety and security of our people from cross-border terrorism emanating from Pakistan," he told reporters in Kolkata.
India, on the intervening night of September 28 and 29, carried out surgical strikes on seven terror launch pads across the LoC with the Army inflicting "significant casualties" on terrorists preparing to infiltrate from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK). The operation was carried days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi's warning that the Uri terror attack would not go unpunished.
