Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today hailed the Centre's decision to go for surgical strikes at launch pads in PoK in the wake of Uri terror attack and said the entire country is united to fight terrorism from across the border.

"The decision of surgical strike taken by the Centre is successful," Kumar told reporters emerging from a function on wild life week here.

In reply to a question on terrorists making a bid to attack an army camp in Baramulla, the national president of JD(U) said "such activities keep happening on borders" and "there was no need to panic".
Everybody knows that the Union Government is making full-proof arrangements to deal with such elements, he said.

"Our Army and Paramilitary personnel who are deployed at the borders have the strength to deal with such situation," Kumar said.

"It is wrong to think that all terror activities will end, it is not possible. We should always remain alert to deal with such elements," he said.

After Uri terror attack on September 18, Kumar had refused to trade charges on any political party and had asserted support to the Central Government to deal with terrorism.
