New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi slammed the Congress party on Friday after the overseas chief of the Congress, Sam Pitroda, questioned the government on the air strike conducted by the Air Force in Pakistan’s Balakot.

“I would like to know more as I have read in New York Times &other newspapers, what did we really attack, we really killed 300 people?” Sam Pitroda asked.

“Opposition insults our forces time and again. I appeal to my fellow Indians- question Opposition leaders on their statements. Tell them- 130 crore Indians will not forgive or forget the Opposition for their antics. India stands firmly with our forces,” PM Modi tweeted.

“Eight people(26/11 terrorists) come and do something, you don’t jump on entire nation(Pakistan). Naive to assume that just because some people came here&attacked, every citizen of that nation is to be blamed. I don’t believe in that way,” Sam Pitroda was quoted by newswire ANI.

Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley also slammed the Pitroda’s comments during a presser.

“He believes what we did was wrong. No country in the world said this, not even the OIC(Organisation of Islamic Cooperation) said this, only Pakistan was of this view. Unfortunate such people are ideologues of a political party,” Arun Jaitley said.

PM Modi reacted by saying that Rahul Gandhi’s trusted aide ‘kick-started the Pakistan National Day celebrations on behalf of the Congress.’

“The most trusted advisor and guide of the Congress President has kick-started the Pakistan National Day celebrations on behalf of the Congress, ironically by demeaning India’s armed forces. Shame!,” PM Modi tweeted.

“Don’t know much about attacks, it happens all the time, attack happened in Mumbai also, we could have then reacted and just sent our planes but that is not right approach. According to me that’s not how you deal with world,” Sam further said.

“Loyal courtier of Congress’ royal dynasty admits what the nation already knew- Congress was unwilling to respond to forces of terror. This is a New India- we will answer terrorists in a language they understand and with interest,” PM Modi said in another tweet.
