Took decision for Balakot as ‘game’ should be played from where terror is being remote-controlled, the Prime Minister says at a Main bhi Chowkidar event video-cenferenced across the country

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on March 31 said he took the decision for the Indian Air Force to conduct the Balakot air strikes as he thought that “the game” should be played from where terrorism is being remote-controlled.

Addressing a ‘Main bhi Chowkidar’ event, he said Pakistan is in a fix because if it acknowledges the air strikes, it will have to accept that there was terror camp there.

“They have been saying that there are no terror camps. Now they have to hide it. They are not allowing anybody to go there. We’ve been told Balakot area is being reconstructed by Pakistan to show that a school is being run there, so that people can be taken there and shown that no terror camp existed there,” he said.

Those abusing Modi on Balakot air strikes are helping Pakistan with their statements, he said.

The event was beamed across the country at 500 places where gatherings of BJP workers, professionals, chowkidars (watchmen), traders, farmers among others will listen to Mr. Modi and interact with him through video-conferencing.
