Modi is planning another attack like Balakot: Mehbooba Mufti

SRINAGAR – Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and People’s Democratic Party (PDP) chief Mehbooba Mufti has accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of creating a fear psychosis under the guise of national security to prepare for another Balakot-like strike in desperation to win Lok Sabha elections.

Mehbooba wrote in a tweet, “In its desperation to win this election, seems like misappropriation of our jawans sacrifices and polarising the electorate hasn’t helped BJP. Now they are creating fear psychosis by using national security as a guise to prepare ground for another Balakot-like strike.”

She was reacting to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s reference to Pulwama attack and the consequent air strike inside Pakistani territory by India Air Force (IAF).

In another tweet, Mufti said, “The manner in which BJPs communalised the political discourse is disgraceful and disgusting. But one can take solace from the fact that they’re doing so only because their chances of winning are bleak. India is the land of the Mahatma & will never fall prey to such designs.”
