Congress leader Shashi Tharoor on Wednesday affirmatively said that for him, Director General Military Operations (DGMO) Lt. General Ranbir Singh's statement regarding the surgical strikes conducted across the LoC is the truth and, therefore, there is no point arguing over the issue. Tharoor said that the the Army should be the judge and decide over the fact that what amount of information should be divulged.

I personally have never doubted the word of our military and to my mind when the DGMO says something, for me it is the truth. I don’t need to argue about that. But because Pakistan has conducted propaganda raising the questions whether the strikes at all happened, some have suggested that we should provide proof
said Tharoor.

Tharoor further suggested that the Indian Army could provide coordinates of the places which it struck as it will serve the purpose without putting national security at stake.
