Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday said the citizens of the country had every right to “question the credibility” of the Balakot operation, especially due to the government’s “ambiguity” about the details.

Responding to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statement at Patna’s Sankalp Rally that the Opposition was demanding proof of the air strikes conducted by the Indian Air Force to demolish JeM camps in Pakistan’s Balakot, Mehbooba said the move did not help enemies but only put the government of India “in a tight spot since they want to exploit this to reap electoral benefits.”

The Prime Minister, while addressing the Patna rally, had said: “Earlier they used to ask for surgical strike evidence.. Now they have started asking for evidence of air strike. Why do they want to discourage our armed forces?”

He added, “When our forces are handling situations at borders, what are some people inside our country doing? When there was a need to condemn terrorism together, then 21 parties came together to pass a resolution against us. No one will forgive them for that.”
