India Called 'Nuke-Armed' Pak’s Bluff With Balakot Air Strikes – Modi

On AFSPA, PM Modi says, 'Shouldn't our security forces have safety net?'

Modi also took a jibe at Abdullah over his recent remark over a separate PM for Jammu and Kashmir.

The Prime Minister blamed two political families of Kashmir - one of National Conference leader Omar Abdullah and the other of Peoples Democratic Party chief Mehbooba Mufti - for "ruining" three generations in the state and said he will not allow them to "divide" the country.

"Pakistan and its supporters have been threatening us for long with its nuclear capability but the IAF called its bluff with its strikes", The Economic Times India quoted him as saying.

"Abdullah family and Mufti family have destroyed lives of three generations of Jammu and Kashmir".

India has, meanwhile, entered full election mode as voting for members of a new lower house of parliament kicked off on 11 April, and the last ballot is expected to be cast five weeks later on 19 May.

The Rajasthan Royals' chase of 188 now stands at second place in the biggest IPL chases vs MI. However, the required runs were too less for the Mumbai team to garner two points.

In a series of two tweets, Mehbooba Mufti called out the BJP and said that first they would call them traitors and at the second moment, they would be forging an alliance. In 2019 Modiji says, "We have to rid J&K of these two political families". "They can bring their entire clan into field, can abuse Modi as much as they want but they won't be able to divide this nation". "But in this new India when terrorists attacked Uri, our fearless soldiers conducted a surgical strike", he said.

Opposition parties accuse Modi of exploiting turbulence in Kashmir to woo Hindu voters in the election. The Congress and its allies keep politics above the security of the country. He added that the Congress did not have faith in India's armed forces.

"They [Samajwadi Party-Bahujan Samaj Party] have fielded such candidates in this election who have reservation over Vande Matram. I now see a more powerful wave than in 2014", said Modi.

At the rally, the Prime Minister had promised to "stand like a wall" against "attempts of the National Conference and the PDP to continue family rule" in the state.

If the Congress comes to power, Moily said it will initiate probes into the functioning of the BJP government during the past five years in which the "nation was misled and kept in the dark" over several important issues like Rafale deal.
