Pakistan failed to destroy JeM terror camps on its territory, so we attacked Balakot: Nirmala Sitharaman


Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Monday slammed Pakistan for claiming to be a “victim of terrorism”. She said Pakistan did not take any action to eliminate Jaish-e-Mohammed training camps on its territory.

Sitharaman, while addressing a rally in Shivamogga in Karnataka, said: “Pakistan says they are victims of terrorism. But when JeM claims responsibility for an attack and they have their training camps in Pakistan, then is it not Pak’s responsibility to destroy these camps? But they didn’t, so we attacked Balakot,” she said.

Her statement comes at a time when political parties have raised several questions in relation to Balakot air strike carried out by the Indian Air Force (IAF). Read more
