The Congress party on Wednesday congratulated the army for carrying out successful operations at the India-Myanmar border in the wake of Manipur ambush by militants last week.
“We congratulate the Indian Army for its successful operations. We are proud of our officers and Jawans and take great pride in their valour. We also express our condolences to the families of those 18 soldiers who sacrificed their lives six days ago,” Congress leader Ajay Maken said at a press briefing here.
The army on Tuesday engaged with two separate groups of militants along the Indo-Myanmar border, inflicting significant casualties on them.
