Opposition can do 6, 20 or 30 surgical strikes on paper: PM Narendra Modi
Taking a dig at the Opposition, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, "Jab kagaz par hi karni ho, jab video game mein hi strike karni ho to 6 ho ya 3 ho, 20 hon ya 25 hon, ye jhoote logon ko kya fark padta hai. (When you conduct surgical strikes on paper, it can be three, six, 20 or even 25… it will not matter since it is all lies)"
He also mocked Congress wondering how come no one got to know about these strikes, not the terrorists, Indians or even Pakistan. “Congress now claims they carried out 6 surgical strikes. What strikes were these about which the terrorists did not get to know, Pak didn’t know, even Indians didn’t know.. First they mocked, then protested and now they say me too, me too.”
