India called Pakistan's bluff with air strikes: PM Modi

The prime minister claimed at an election rally that an airstrike inside Pakistan in February had shown that warnings the hostilities could escalate into nuclear conflict were "false".

India says its fighter jets bombed a suspected militant installation in Pakistan on February 26 to avenge the killing of 40 paramilitaries by a suicide bomber in Indian Kashmir 12 days earlier. "This is a new India and it will strike terrorists well inside their hideouts across the border", he warned.

The PM said that wrong policies of the Congress led to the mass exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the Valley in 1989.

Speaking at a public meeting in Kathua, Jammu and Kashmir, he alleged that the Congress never had faith in the Armed Forces and that is why it was questioning the surgical strike and air strike in Balakot.

"The Congress always restricted our Army from going all out against terrorists". The Congress and its allies keep politics above the security of the country. "Some people are so involved in anti-Modi tirade that they have forgotten all about the country's security", Indian media quoted Modi as saying.

Modi nixed the possibility of separate Sadar-e-Riyasat and Wazir-e-Azam posts (equivalent to president and prime minister) in the IHK.

Mr Modi slammed the Congress for raising doubts on the Balakot airstrikes and said that the Opposition party has never trusted the valour of the Armed Forces.

"I want to make it clear to these separatist supporters that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India and will remain so". "The Abdullah and Mufti families destroyed the lives of three generations of Jammu and Kashmir". "I had personally approached the Prime Minister several times over the last two years to seek support for ensuring that the centenary of the historic event is observed in a befitting manner but the central government had failed to respond suitably", the Punjab CM said. "That commitment made by Shyama Prasad Mookerjee is our firm resolve", he said. In 2019 Modiji says, "We have to rid J&K of these two political families". I am on a mission to end poverty in the country, finish terrorism, act against corruption and black money.

PM Modi was all praises for the people of Jammu and Baramulla for turning out to vote in large numbers in the first phase of Lok Sabha elections and said, "The huge voting percentages coming out from Jammu and Kashmir reiterated the fact that the people here want to strengthen the democratic structure in the state".
