Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi during an event ‘Main bhi Chowkidar’ in New Delhi, while speaking about the IAF strikes in Balakot said that ‘Pakistan will die its own death.’
According to a report by the Indian Express, Modi said that Pakistan had started opening its airspace now believing “Modi was busy with elections”. “For me, the country is priority, not elections,” he said, adding that he does not takes such decisions considering political gains.
“We have spent a lot of time doing ‘India-Pakistan’. Pakistan will die its own death, leave that and lets move ahead,” the Modi said.
In a veiled attack on the Congress’s minimum income guarantee plan, Modi said that from Jawaharlal Nehru onwards, the Nehru Gandhi family had been raising the slogan of poverty even as poverty itself had increased.
Modi said, “Some people know that they are not coming to power and are making several promises… woh revadiyan baant rahe hain. I appeal to first-time voters to look into the track record of those people and not listen to their taped record.”
Modi claimed Pakistan was in a fix over the strikes. “They have been saying there are no terror camps. Now they have to hide them. They are not allowing anybody to go there. I have been told that a particular area is being reconstructed by Pakistan to show that a school is being run there so that people can be taken there and shown that no terror camp existed there.”
