On Sunday, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has alleged the opposition of politicizing the pre-dawn air strikes, which took place in Pakistan’s Balakot.

Ms. Sitharaman said that “the opposition is the one who is politicizing the airstrike issue and indulging in false allegations.”

The Defence Minister was speaking at an event at Butta Convention Centre in Hyderabad’s Madhapur.

“Why is the opposition asking for proof after we attacked Balakot? They ask if we have taken selfies with the killed terrorists or not,” added Mr. Sitharaman.

She continued, “Air force personnel say it was their honour to carry out the airstrike. We have given freedom to our armed forces and they will take the call.”

She also informed that the first Rafale fighter jet will be delivered in September 2019 and the remaining will be delivered by 2022.

“The war memorial was built in the nation after 70 years by Prime Minister Modi led BJP government,” said the Defence Minister, adding that Rs. 35000 crore was offered under “One Rank, One Pension” (OROP) to the armed forces.
