New Delhi:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday claimed that he informed Pakistan about the 2019 Balakot air strikes before disclosing it to the world.

Speaking at a poll rally in Karnataka’s Bagalkot, he said that “Modi doesn’t believe in attacking from the back and fights openly face to face”.

The Prime Minister said, “I had asked the forces to call the media and inform them, but I said before that I will inform Pakistan through telephone about airstrikes at night and the destruction caused, but Pakistan people did not come on the phone. So I asked forces to wait, and after informing them, we later disclosed to the world about airstrikes that happened during the night,” he said.

He added that “Modi doesn’t hide things nor attacks from hiding, and does things openly.”

PM Modi also warned those who try to kill innocent people of the country and said, “This is Naya Bharat (New India)… Ghar me ghuskar ke maarega (will kill inside one’s (enemy) territory).

India warplanes attacked a Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist training camp in Balakot in Pakistan on February 26, 2019, in response to the Pulwama terror attack.
