Ghaziabad/Greater Noida: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath hit out at the Opposition for seeking evidence of the Balakot airstrike, alleging that only two factions were “pained” by the post-Pulwama retaliation — Pakistan and the Opposition. “Pakistan was counting the dead bodies of terrorists. At that time, our Opposition was asking questions about the airstrike. This will not be tolerated at any cost,” Adityanath said at a public meeting in Ghaziabad. At another rally in Greater Noida, the Bharatiya Janata Party leader accused the previous Congressled UPA government of “serving biryani” to “terrorists” and having a soft approach towards handling “terrorism”. “Masood Azhar… Congress gives them respect by adding ‘ji’ after their name. But, the BJP has only two ways of dealing with terrorists — bullet or bomb,” he said. “After the air strikes in Balakot, Pakistan was crying. Only two factions were pained by this, either Pakistan or the Congress-SP-BSP. Rest of the country was celebrating it and these people were asking for proof,” Adityanath said. The chief minister accused Congress president Rahul Gandhi, Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party of insulting the soldiers by asking proof of the airstrike. He also alleged that the Opposition were encouraging “terrorism”, naxalism and anarchism. Adityanath also pointed out to the alleged migration from cities like Kairana, Kandla. “In the last two years of our government, not a single family has migrated from the state. In fact, people are now coming back to the state. The only people who have migrated from the state are criminals, who know that nobody can save them in the state,” he said. —PTI
