The truth unveiled!!!
Amid questions being asked for the casualties in numbers occurred due to IAF’s strike in Pakistan, Union minister of state, electronic and IT, now marks differently, says: “The strikes were meant to scare and warn and not to take human lives.”
India earlier, along with her PM Modi, celebrated on February 26, the whole day, claiming an achievement by intruding deep in Pakistan, reaching Balakot (KPK) and destroying biggest terrorists’ camps, killing 300 to 350 terrorists. Further, they claimed that their jets stayed for 21 mins in Pakistan’s air space.
Both of these claims, from the very beginning, lacked concrete evidence. The issue ignited a sharp argument between the different factions of the Indian government and opposition. The parliament continues to demand tangible proves to validate the claim, which IAF or Modi is unable to provide yet.
“Neither Prime Minister Narendra Modi nor BJP chief Amit Shah ever mentioned any casualty figures about the IAF strike at a Jaish-e-Mohammad camp in Pakistan.” mentions, Ahluwalia
“Has Prime Minister Narendra Modi mentioned the 300 figure or did any spokesperson of the Bharatiya Janata Party say so? Did Amit Shah give any figure even once? The air strikes were designed to demonstrate that we can enter your home, despite your (Pakistan’s) elaborate security arrangements, and can strike at will at terror locations that we have properly identified,” said Ahluwalia, the Darjeeling MP, in Siliguri on Friday.
This was his response to Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee’s remarks on Thursday questioning the number of casualties in India’s strike in Balakot on February 26.
“We have the right to know how many people were killed in the air strikes launched by India. Is it 300, or 350? I read in the international media that the bombs landed somewhere else. How many actually perished? Or, did anyone die at all?” the Trinamool Congress chief had asked.
Following Ahluwalia’s remarks, the Communist Party of India (Marxist) asked on Twitter whether the government was now backtracking from its claims that it took out a terrorist camp in Pakistan
The facts, however, depicts an entirely different picture. As per the aeronautical calculations and the experts’ opinions, the time spent by Indian jets couldn’t be more than 4 minutes.
Thereupon, being interrupted by PAF jets, the Indian aircrafts rushed back and dropped their payloads (a practice being done to ease the aircraft and speed up the flight) hastily in the empty area of ‘Jabba’.
The dropped payload landed in the vicinity of the forest, damaged nothing but 4 trees, confirms ISPR.
