West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee came under scathing attack on Friday for questioning the credibility of the air strike by India on terror facilities deep inside Pakistan on February 26.
“We have the right to know how many people were killed in the air strikes launched by India. Is it 300 or 350? I read in the international media that the bombs landed somewhere else. How many actually perished? Or, did anyone at all?” Banerjee had asked on Thursday.
The remarks ruffled too many feathers. BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya said Banerjee comments were very unfortunate, according to DNA India.
“While the entire country asking for revenge she is asking for proofs of the attacks by India on Pakistan. At a time when we should stand by the country and boost the morale of our forces she is making pro-Pakistan statements. I don’t think there is any need to reply to her. People will do that in the forthcoming elections.”
