No I do not, very simply because Parakram was about defending India's sovereign soil. That would be like if the Cubans/Russians had landed on the beaches of Flordia!! surely the US would have responded to that.
IG did act, maybe reactively but credit should go to her for the actions taken in Indian's supreme interest, even if, what was won by the gun was largely lost on the table.
True, like all Indian leaders IG still suffered from that lack of finishing touch i.e. the coup de grace. When the enemy is down finish him off, no mercy. She should have got a final status on J&K before releasing the 93,000 dogs.
