Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): Madhya Pradesh Chief Kamal Nath on Tuesday, while refusing to comment on Congress leader Digvijaya Singh’s tweet on the Pulwama terror attack, said the government should reveal images and videos of the operation carried out by the Indian Air Force in Balakot.
“I don’t know what and why he (Digvijaya Singh) wrote, one should ask him as I don’t want to comment. However, the government must reveal its images and videos of airstrikes carried out by Indian Air Forces at Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) camps in Balakot in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province,” he told ANI.
“Everything will come out..the information is with the whole world and everyone knows what the truth is. This information will come out and they all (Centre) will have to answer,” he added.
Talking about the press conference conducted by IAF chief BS Dhanoa on Monday, Nath said: “IAF chief had said yesterday that they just attacked the target. They are informed about the target in degrees through GPS. We don’t know what was the target and what they hit.”
Singh, a former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister, had said after the Pulwama “durghatna” (accident) and the Indian Air Force (IAF) strike, “sandeh” (doubt) is being expressed in some foreign media reports following which “vishwasniyata” (credibility) of the government is under question.
In another tweet on Tuesday, Singh questioned the casualty claim in the air strike and demanded Prime Minister Narendra Modi to come out clear on the same.
“Prime Minister, some ministers of your government say 300 terrorists killed, BJP president says 250 are killed, Yogi Adityanath says 400 people were killed and your minister SS Ahluwalia says that no one died. And you are silent about this issue. The country wants to know who is a liar in this,” he said.
Singh’s statement comes at a time when many opposition leaders are raising questions on the Balakot strike by the Indian Air Force and are asking for proof and the exact casualty inflicted on terrorists.
India carried out the air strike in less than two weeks after the Jaish terror attack in Pulwama in which 40 CRPF personnel lost their lives.
