Srinagar: Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti Sunday said the citizens of the country have every right to question Balakote strikes and calling those who question the veracity of strikes ‘anti-national’ was baffling.
The PDP president said allowing political discourse to be reduced to the Balakot strikes would only help the BJP electorally.
“Calling those who question the veracity of Balakot strikes anti-nationalis baffling. However, the opposition should not fall into this trap of changing the entire election discourse from pressing issues like demonetisation, GST, unemployment, farmers distress to these strikes, Mehbooba wrote on Twitter.
As citizens of this country, we have every right to question the credibility of the Balakot operation. Esp due to GoIs ambiguity about the details.
How does it help the enemies? Only puts GoI in a tight spot since they want to exploit this to reap electoral benefits. https://t.co/n6U20Frzqt

In another tweet she said the citizens of the country have every right to question the credibility of the Balakot operation especially due to the Government of India’s ambiguity about the details.
