India Not Intimated By Pakistan’s Bluff of Nuclear-War: PM Modi

Indian PM Narendra Modi stated that Delhi has stopped its policy of being intimidated by Islamabad’s Nuclear threats and said its Indian nuclear bombs were not being preserved for Diwali.

Another Mistake After Uri and Pulwama, Islamabad Will Pay Dearly: PM Modi

While addressing an election rally in Rajasthan, the country’s premier said that “India has stopped the policy of getting scared of Pakistan’s threats”, according to India Today.

“Every other day they used to say ‘we have a nuclear button, we have a nuclear button’. What do we have then? Have we kept it for Diwali?” Addressing an election rally in Rajasthan’s Chittorgarh hours after a series of blasts rocked Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday, PM Modi said, “India is standing by Sri Lanka and is ready for any help in the time of crisis.”

Tensions between the two nuclear-armed neighbours escalated after the Pulwama attack, which killed over 40 officials of India Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) in Jammu and Kashmir with New Delhi accusing banned Jaish-e-Mohammad of being behind the suicide bombing.

Within days of the attack, Indian fighter jets violated Pakistan’s air space and dropped bombs in Balakot. New Delhi claimed it targeted terrorist camps of JeM, a claim rejected rebutted by Islamabad and questioned by the international media.

Pakistan responded and launched air strikes the next day. Its fighter jets dropped missiles in the open space in order to convey a message to India that Pakistan had the will and capacity to hit back. Pakistani fighter jets also shot down an Indian warplane in a dogfight. One of the Indian pilots, who ejected the downed plane, was captured.
