Recently, the Indian Army Launched Operation Sarvashakti in Jammu and Kashmir.

About Operation Sarvashakti:

  • Mission: To neutralize terrorist threats emanating from the Pir Panjal Mountain range in Jammu and Kashmir, particularly in the Rajouri-Poonch sector.
  • Joint Effort: Security forces from the Srinagar-based 15 Corps and the Nagrota-based 16 Corps, along with other agencies and paramilitary forces, will collaborate in this crucial operation.
  • Operation on the line: Drawing inspiration from Operation Sarpvinash of 2003, which successfully eliminated nearly 100 terrorists in the region, Sarvashakti aims to achieve similar results with a renewed focus.

Need for Operation Savashakti:

  • Recent Escalation: A surge in terrorist activity, backed by Pakistani proxies, has claimed the lives of around 20 Indian troops in the Rajouri-Poonch sector. This necessitates decisive action to safeguard the region and its people.
  • Disrupting Networks: The operation aims to dismantle terrorist hideouts hidden within the dense jungles, mountains, and caves of the Pir Panjal range, effectively disrupting their networks and operations.
  • Restoring Peace and Stability: Ultimately, Operation Sarvashakti seeks to create a safer environment for the residents of Jammu and Kashmir, fostering peace and stability in the region.
