SUNNYVALE, CA: OFBJP volunteers celebrated Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s birthday on 18th September at Chai Pe Charcha meeting in Bombay- To-Goa restaurant in Sunnyvale. The event was well attended by OFBJP volunteers. Chandru Bhambhra welcomed all. A delicious cake was cut after lighting a glowing candle to mark the occasion.
Celebratory mood of the event was dampened by the heinous terror attacks on an Indian Army base in Uri area of Kashmir, India. Various members expressed their views. Members felt that Lt. Gen. (Retd) Syed
Hasnain, who once commanded the Uri brigade, had highlighted the vulnerabilities which limit India’s ability to guard herself well against these terror attacks.
The reduced levels of Jhelum River may have made it easy for the terrorists to cross the border into India. The attack seems to have been timed to cause maximum effect, when two regiments were switching occupancy at the army base.
Attendees underscored that 13 of the soldiers seem to have been martyred when grenades were thrown at a refueling diesel tanker located at the base. This is one of the worst terror attacks on India and urged
the Government of India to act tough on terrorists and their supporters. An overt action may be necessary to showcase India’s intent but if under the circumstances, covert action is the best choice, people should support the government in that too, and not construe that as inaction.
Knowing PM Modi to be a patriotic man to the core, attendees reposed their faith in Modi’s visionary leadership to act tough. It was felt that PM Modi should keep working on uniting the world against terrorism.
Prominent attendees included Mahadev Karadigudda, Shivu Vibhuti, Sid Shettar, Thippeswamy, Prabhu Patil, Raghu Reddy, Dinesh Neelavar, Sunil Ganu, Lalji Goswami, Bhriguraj Jhabua, Mahima Singh, Sunil Ganu, Rajesh Nair.
