Noida: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday again hit out at those seeking proof of India's air strike in Balakot, Pakistan and slammed the previous Congress government for its handling of terror incidents post-26/11 Mumbai attack. Addressing a public meeting in Greater Noida, Modi said the corrupt are opposing and abusing him in order to get votes.
“India today works on 'nayi reeti, nayi neeti' (new methods, new policies), asserting that after the terror attack in J&K's Uri in 2016, the country for the ‘first time taught terrorists a lesson in a language they understand’ with surgical strikes,” he said."Is it okay for you (the people) to have a government that does nothing? A chowkidar (referring to prime minister) who sleeps?," he asked the gathering of thousands.
"After Uri, proofs were sought. Our soldiers did something that has never happened before. Our soldiers struck terrorists inside their home. Terrorists and their guardians had not expected such action. They thought if India once did a surgical strike, they would again do something similar. So, they had deployed forces along the border, but we went by air this time," Modi said.
He said after the pre-dawn air strike on February 24, India was quietly monitoring the situation and it was Pakistan which started "crying" around 5am that "Modi has hit us". "They were thinking they can keep wounding India, wage attacks, proxy wars and India would not respond. The reason that enemies of India had this thought was (because of ) the attitude of the 'remote-controlled' government prior to 2014. That is why they (enemies) could nurture this attitude," the Prime Minster said.
