In an apparent reference to India's air strikes on terror camps in Pakistan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said that a "pilot project", which was a "practice" just got over, and the "real project" was yet to happen.
India was quick to blame the state of Pakistan for the suicide bombing carried out by a native of the Indian occupied Kashmir (IOK) - killing 44 soldiers.
India later confirmed that it lost only one of its MiG-21s during an engagement with Pakistani forces.
An IAF pilot was captured by Pakistan after an aerial combat on Wednesday during which the two sides claimed they shot down each other's aircraft. "Pradhan Sevak hell-bent on creating a Video Conf. [conference] record", he wrote on Twitter.
Pakistan's Prime Minister once again called for de-escalation with India in a speech which is being widely hailed across the world.
IAF sources identified the pilot as Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman.
"The meeting of 21 parties expressed their deep anguish over the blatant politicisation of the sacrifices made by our armed forces by leader of the ruling party".
Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati also criticised the prime minister for his booth connect programme. "The entire Opposition is concerned over national security", Singh had tweeted. Congress cancelled its CWC and the Opposition is worrying about unity of the nation. "The silence is deafening", SP chief Akhilesh Yadav also said.
"On Feb 28, PM Modi will interact with over 1 crore BJP karyakartas, volunteers and well wishers, spread across 15,000 locations, in what would be world's largest video conference", BJP president Amit Shah said in a tweet on Sunday.
The BJP only knows the politics of distraction, lies, branding and marketing.
"Tuesday's action of destroying terror hideouts by entering inside Pakistan has resulted in a pro-Modi wave in the country, the results of which can be seen in coming Lok Sabha polls".
Earlier, the far-right Hindutva party, Shiv Sena warned the incumbent government to not "behave in a way that would fuel allegations that it was trying to wage a war" with Pakistan merely to influence the upcoming general elections.
