India won�t take things lying down: Parrikar

By The Assam Tribune

MUMBAI, Nov 21 - Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar today said the recent surgical strike across the LoC has put forth the message that the government will not be aggressive, but at the same time �will also not take things lying down�.

He also said the cross-border tension would ease if Pakistan stops violating the ceasefire agreement.

�The surgical strike has given a message that the Indian government will not be aggressive, but will also not take things lying down,� Parrikar told reporters after commissioning new warship INS Chennai here.

Responding to questions on the Army�s action against terror camps and the recent rise in ceasefire violations across the border, Parrikar said if the �timetable� of such violations is observed, there is always some political angle to them. � PTI
