PDP chief and Former Jammu & Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has said that called those people ‘anti-national’ who asked for the proof of Balakot air strike was “baffling”.
She also reiterated that the election discourse should be on the much important issues like GST, demonetisation, unemployment and farmers distress but the BJP has reduced it only to the air-strikes.
In her tweet, she wrote, “Calling those who question the veracity of Balakot strikes anti-national is baffling. However, the opposition should not fall into this trap of changing the entire election discourse from pressing issues like demonetisation, GST, unemployment, farmers distress to these strikes.”
India conducted air strike at a Jaish-e-Mohammed terror camp in Balakot in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan on February 26 in which a large number of terrorists were killed.
The air strikes were conducted 12 days after the Pulwama attack in which 40 CRPF personnel were martyred.
Mehbooba Mufti accused BJP of allowing political discourse to be reduced to the air-strikes while the other important issues take back-seat.
