Srinagar: PDP Chief and former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti on Monday while reacting to Narendra Modi’s comments regarding nuclear weapons of India said that if India hasn’t kept the nuclear bomb for Diwali, obviously Pakistan has not kept theirs for Eid.
Addressing a media, Mufti said, “Jo Pakistan ke pass honge, vo bhi Eid ke liye nahi rakhe honge. Yeh hisaab baraabar hota hai. (Those [nuclear weapons] possessed by Pakistan would have not kept for Eid either.)
Mehbooba Mufti, PDP on PM Modi’s remark, ‘Every other day they (Pakistan) used to say “We’ve nuclear button, we’ve nuclear button”…..What do we have then? Have we kept it for Diwali?’: Jo Pakistan ke pass honge, vo bhi Eid ke liye nahi rakhe honge. Yeh hisaab baraabar s
In a tweet, the former Chief Minister said If India hasn’t kept nuclear bomb for Diwali, it’s obvious Pakistan’s not kept theirs for Eid either. Don’t know why PM Modi must stoop so low & reduce political discourse to this.
The Prime Minister on Sunday had remarked at the Barmer rally in Rajasthan that “India has stopped paying heed to Paksitan’s threats… It is always trying to scare us with their nuclear weaponry. I want to tell them, our nuclear weapons are also not for Diwali.” (Diwali or Deepavali is the most auspicious and celebrated festival of the Hindus.)
Then attacking the erstwhile UPA government, the Prime Minister said, “Congress government missed the opportunity to resolve Kashmir issue in 1971 by releasing 90000 Pakistani soldiers who surrendered.” Giving a peek into his government’s strong and powerful reply to its enemies, he questioned the crowd gathered, if his government would have done the same?
“On this Congress leaders asked for evidence, now they are not raising this question because Ist & IInd phase poll trends have shut their mouths,” he said, making a witty remark: “Chot udhar hui, peera inhe hui, aur aansu bhi behane lage (The wound was there, but they felt the pain and even tears started flowing).” (PTK)
