New Delhi: Political parties on Wednesday condemned the killing of two Indian soldiers by Pakistan Army with the Congress and the BJP demanding that the government clearly draw the redlines in dealing with the neighbouring nation.

"This attack is also warning to India. A warning that in dealing with Pakistan it is now extremely important that Government of India clearly defines the red lines," Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley said here.

He also wanted the Government to place all facts of the attack before the international community so that Pakistan can be "named and shamed" before the world at large.

He said the brutal nature of the killing of two Indian soldiers by Pakistanis shows the "real design behind this attack."

The Congress reacted with anger and outrage over the incident with party spokesperson Rashid Alvi saying that Pakistan should not try India`s patience.

"What Pakistan has done on our borders is unfortunate. Pakistan should not try our patience. We have lost our patience now," he said.

Congress leader and Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari called for drawing of red lines while dealing with Pakistan.

"Pakistan must respect rules of engagement and the ceasefire agreement. How can we tolerate mutilation of our braves. Redlines must be drawn," Tewari said in a remark posted on the social networking site Twitter.
Shiv Sena demanded resignation of Defence Minister A K Antony and said India should give a "befitting" reply to Pakistan.

CPI said the provocative action by Pakistan was "totally unacceptable and condemnable".
