But not many people seem satisfied with this reply of the Foreign Minister.

People are giving their feedback on the statement of the Foreign Minister on social media.

Well-known journalist Rahul Pandita tweeted that what is the use of weapons if you cannot use them when your commanding officer is being killed.

Rahul Pandita said, "Okay, the soldiers had weapons." I also understand the agreements. But what is the point of having weapons if you cannot use them when your commanding officer's body was being pierced with nails and barbed wire. ''


Eminent journalist Ashutosh also objected to the foreign minister's reply, saying, "External Affairs Minister is hiding more than what your tweets tell. If Indian soldiers had weapons as you say, then they self-defense Why didn't I use them? Minister, please answer it. This is a matter of national security, do not hide anything, just tell me what is the truth. "
