YSRC has alleged that Union Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu was acting as a representative of the TD in the BJP. Speaking to reporters in the city , YSRC leader B. Karunakar Reddy said that Venkaiah Naidu had been constantly praising AP Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu and undermining the need for special status in his functions across the state. YSRC was reacting to the criticism by Mr Venkaiah against Jagan at the Tenali meet.

On the other hand TRS MP form Nizamabad K Kavitha also lashed out at the Union Minister Venkaiah saying that the Union Minister was trying to help only AP and is neglecting the interest of Telangana. He went to examine the floods in AP recommended funds for AP and did not bother about TS she charged.Kavitha also openly opposed Venkaiah on the subject of Hyderabad Liberation day.

On the other hand Venkaiah who is busy with National Politics stated that India will not keep quite on the terrorist activities of Pakistan. He was talking to the media after a meeting of all the all-party leaders on the surgical strikes conducted by the Indian army on terroritst bases along the LoC.

Pakistan on the other hand denied that Indian troops had carried out surgical strikes across the Line of Control, saying it had responded to “cross-border fire” from the Indian side that killed two soldiers and injured nine more.
The civilian and military leadership of Pakistan reacted after India’s Director General of Military Operations (DGMO) Lt Gen Ranbir Singh said Indian soldiers conducted surgical strikes on terrorist launch pads across the LoC, causing significant casualties.

The first reaction was from the Pakistani military’s media arm, which said in a strongly worded statement: “There has been no surgical strike by India, instead there had been cross-border fire initiated and conducted by India which is existential phenomenon.”

The military said it had “strongly and befittingly responded” to the firing according to rules of engagement. The statement added, “Pakistan has made it clear that if there is a surgical strike on Pakistani soil, same will be strongly responded.”

The military dismissed the surgical strikes linked to “alleged terrorists bases” as an “illusion” aimed at creating “false effects”, while defence minister Khawaja Asif referred to them as “a lie”.

Asif said the Pakistan Army had given a “befitting response” to “small arms fire last night on five sectors across the LoC”.
