The Prime Minister further said, “The Opposition let our soldiers down in the hour of need by questioning and seeking proof of IAF air strike on Jaish camps in Pakistan."

”Opposition tries to bring down Modi, while I insist on joining hands in countering terrorism and bringing an end to it,” he added.

Speaking about the Balakot Airstrike PM Modi said, "Now they have even started asking for proof of the AirStrike. Why are Congress and its allies demoralizing our forces? Why are they giving statements which are benefiting our enemies?"

"I salute the martyrs of Pulwama, the whole nation is standing with the families of the jawans," he added.
