India Called 'Nuke-Armed' Pak’s Bluff With Balakot Air Strikes - Modi

PM Modi further lashed out at the Congress and its regional allies PDP and NC for forging an opportunist alliance that stands against the interests of the country and said, "The recent statements given by one of Congress' allies here asking for a separate Prime Minister for Jammu and Kashmir reveals how this alliance goes against our country". In 2019 Modiji says, "We have to rid J&K of these two political families".

Mehbooba and Omar were reacting strongly to Modi's remarks against the Abdullah and Mufti families on Sunday morning at an election rally in Kathua.

Modi and his Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have made national security the focus of their campaign for a national election now being held. The bright future of J&K can be ensured only after their departure. "The Abdullah and Mufti families destroyed the lives of three generations of Jammu and Kashmir".


Mehbooba was quick in responding to Modi's allegations by tweeting; "Why does PM bash political families pre elections & then sends his envoys to stitch alliances with the very same parties? The Grand Old Party's manifesto promises that AFSPA (Armed Forces Special Powers Act) will be removed from the state if they come to power to demoralise the security forces". "BJP with its noxious agenda of banishing Muslims & minorities wants to divide India".

The prime minister told an election rally that an air strike inside Pakistan in February had shown that warnings hostilities could escalate into nuclear conflict were false. "In order to gain sympathy & consequently power, PM is misleading people by equating himself with the nation".

"The Congress was so concerned about their vote bank, that they pretended not to see the atrocities against my Kashmiri Pandit brothers and sisters", Modi said."The BJP is committed to bring the Kashmiri Pandits back to their land. India is not Modi & Modi isn't India", Mehbooba Mufti said. "This is a new India and it will strike terrorists well inside their hideouts across the border", he thundered.
