As India celebrated the first anniversary of Surgical Strikes against Pakistan on September 29, NewsX told you the story no one had told you before.

On the anniversary eve, we got you exclusive details of the strikes that shaped the course of history forever. We got you intricate details of how the surgical strike was planned and executed with clinical precision, revealed how one of our brave sons had become a mine casualty as his legs got stuck in one of the mines. We told you how the soldier injured in the mine blast was shifted to a helicopter, how our Bravehearts returned to base safely in spite of heavy firing by Pakistan.

Today, Prime Minister Modi had a round of applause for NewsX for bringing to light the untold story of our brave sons who put their lives at risk to safeguard the interests of the nation, to avenge the death of 18 jawans who lost their lives in the dastardly Uri attack.

But the Opposition wasted no time in hitting out at the Prime Minister accusing him of playing politics over surgical strikes. But the question is — Is it fair to get down to petty politicking over issues concerning national security?
