It became necessary to carry out the ‘Operation Blue Star’.
Operation Blue Star became necessary because:
1. Khalistan supporter Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale had his followers to capture the Golden Temple after President’s Rule was imposed on Punjab in 1983.
2. They turned Golden Temple into a fort and this caused a lot of tension in Punjab.
3. The military was ordered to get the terrorists out of Golden Temple and Major General Kuldeep Singh Drar led the operation.
