He questioned the death toll in the Balakot airstrike conducted by the Indian Air Force in Pakistan in retaliation to the Pulwama terror attack.
“If they (IAF) killed 300, its ok. All I am saying is can you give me more facts and prove it,” said Pitroda in a wide-ranging interview to ANI. “I would like to know a little more because I read reports in the New York Times and other newspapers.
Did we really attack
and did we really killed 300 people? As a citizen, I am entitled to know and if
I ask it is my duty to ask, that doesn’t mean I’m not a nationalist, That
doesn’t mean I am on this side or that side. We need to know the facts. If you
say 300 people were killed, I need to know that. We all need to know that,
people of India need to know that and then comes global media which says nobody
was killed. I look bad as an Indian citizen,” said Pitroda.
Slamming Sam pitroda over his comments on the
Indian action in Pakistan in retaliation to the Pulwama terror attack, PM Modi
tweeted The most trusted
advisor and guide of the Congress President has kick-started the Pakistan
National Day celebrations on behalf of the Congress, ironically by demeaning
India’s armed forces.
