Modi himself questioning success of IAF action in Balakot: Congress

NEW DELHI: Congress Party has said that the government was suggesting the recent Indian Airforce action against the alleged terrorists in Balakot in Pakistan.

Following the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi accused the opposition of delaying the induction of Rafale warplanes into the air force which affected the Balakot action, the Congress Party said that the Prime Minister was himself questioning the success of the IAF action.

The Congress said Modi had himself “questioned” the recent “anti-terror air strikes in Pakistan” by his remarks that the country was feeling the absence of Rafale fighter jets as the results could have been different if India had these aircraft.

The party also said it had neither sought proof of such strike earlier nor was it asking for it now.

“The prime minister has himself questioned the air strikes. He said had the Rafale jets been there (with the IAF), the results would have been different.

What is the meaning of this?” Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari said during a press conference in New Delhi.

Asserting that the prime minister should himself explain what would have been different with Rafale jets, he held Mr Modi responsible for the delay in the induction of the French-made jets into the IAF by “cancelling” the earlier negotiations, The Hindu reported.
