Mumbai: The Shiv Sena Tuesday said India’s citizens have the right to know about the casualties in the air strike on a Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) camp in Pakistan and that revealing such information would not lower the morale of armed forces, PTI reported.
“Citizens of the country have the right to know what and how much harm has been caused to the enemy by the defence forces. We do not think the morale of our forces is being lowered by asking for it,” it said.
The Indian Air Force (IAF) jets on February 26 pounded JeM’s biggest training camp in Pakistan in retaliation to the terror outfit’s attack in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir in which 40 CRPF personnel were killed.
While the government has so far not given any official figure of the casualties in the air strikes, some opposition parties have been asking for a proof of it.
Referring to it, the Sena said, “Where did the 300-kg RDX used in Pulwama attack come from? How many terrorists were killed in our strikes on terror camps? Discussions over these will happen till the last days of polls because before the Pulwama attack, inflation, unemployment and Rafale jet deal were the burning issues for the Opposition.” (PTI)
