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

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 foolproof 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.
