Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Friday praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the surgical strikes by the Indian Army on terrorist launch pads across Line of Control (LoC).

He said that for the first time in two-and-a-half years Modi took action befitting the stature of a Prime Minister.

Addressing a gathering at Bulandshar as part of his Kisan Yatra in Uttar Pradesh, Gandhi said the whole country and Congress was with the government. 

"I want to thank him that for the first time in two-and-a-half years, he has taken action which befits the stature of PM. He has my full support. The entire country and the Congress is with the Prime Minister," Gandhi said.

The army carried out the surgical strikes on late Wednesday night on seven terrorist launch pads across the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir inflicting "significant casualties".
