Many Intelligence and Security agencies have expressed their displeasure on the unwarranted and out-of-turn comments by Union Ministers especially the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on the ongoing issues concerning Pakistan operations. The trigger point of displeasure was the unexpected statement from Jaitley on the capabilities of Indian forces to act in Pakistan soil like that of the US Special Forces’ eliminating Osama Bin Laden. The security and top brass have told the National Security Advisor that Jaitely’s unwarranted comments in this regard had alerted fugitive Dawood Ibrahim living in Karachi and have led the strengthening of his security in Karachi.
Out of the blue, at a River Ganga cleaning function, Jaitley started interacting with media and said that India is now capable of doing an American-style operation on Osama Bin Laden. Referring to the US operation in Abbottabad, Jaitley said, “Cannot we do it? This used to be only an imagination, a wish. There was frustration and disappointment. It is possible today.” Jaitley also reiterated that if the US can do such things, why can’t India? As Jaitley enjoys huge clout in the media world, all channels started flashing that Indian forces are capable of landing in Pakistan and pick enemies like the US did to Osama Bin Laden. Other Ministers who attended the function also wondered why Jaitley was talking about Osama-like-operation by Indian forces during a River Ganga Rejuvenation Programme.
Security officials are unhappy about Jaitley’s announcement. The Security top brass is upset that this could alert Dawood Ibrahim, who lives in a known address in Karachi. Immediately upon Arun Jaitley’s disclosure, Pakistan vastly increased his security in Karachi. The top brass questioned the need for the Finance Minister to go out of his way to disclose this possibility and wrecked one of their (possible) plans for teaching Pakistan a lesson.
On the evening of February 27, Pakistan blacked out Karachi and several other border towns against possible air strike areas.
It is learned that after this reporting by security top brass to NSA Ajit Doval, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has cautioned all non-concerned Ministers to refrain from talking about Pakistan related issues.
