He should come on national TV call out Pakistani's for their behaviour, demand Abhinav's release and reassure the nation. Issuing a demarche to the pakistani ambassador doesn't cut it.
Doesn't look nice if the PM doesn't address the nation on a day when the enemy attempted strikes on a brigade HQ, caught a brave young man alive and parading him like an animal.
Please understand that this is Modis way. He keeps his moves close to his chest and does not either play to the gallery or make bombastic claims.
This is information control.
I agree that a lot of information management is required and some non classified info given out in drips and dribbles would reassure us all, but this is serious stuff.
Last time shri Modi gave forces a free hand. What happened? Balakot happened. So lets wait & watch.
Imagine how unnerved the TSP side is.
