priyankaBATHINDA (Punjab) : Congress national general secretary Priyanka Gandhi mocked at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his recent comments in an interview where he suggested that cloud and rain prevented Pakistani radars from detecting Indian fighter jets during the Balakot air strike.
“He (PM) is a big defence expert, so he self-decided to whom the contract for making a fight craft should be given. Instead of opting for an institution (HAL) which holds expertise in making aircrafts since four decades, the contract was given to a company which has no experience of the job.
He scripted a scam of Rs 30,000 crores, but thought that the weather is cloudy and he’ll not come on the radar. But he has come on the radar and has been exposed among masses,” said Priyanka while addressing people at Indore’s commercial heart Rajwada after the road-show.
To the list of swipes at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his comment that clouds helped Indian fighter jets escape Pakistani radars during the Balakot airstrike, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra today contributed one more.
“Whether there is a storm or whether it is cloudy, (PM Modi’s) reality is on the country’s radar,” the Congress general secretary said while campaigning in Punjab for the last round of voting in the national election on May 19.
PM Modi only believed in propaganda and big promises, said Priyanka Gandhi, addressing a rally in Bathinda. “If you listen to him, it will seem like no work was done in 60 years. Everything happened only in the last five years.”
She referred to PM Modi’s comments in an interview to a TV channel, in which he described the planning of the Balakot air strikes. The Prime Minister said when bad weather had experts debating changing the date of the operation, he, in his “raw wisdom”, had suggested that bad weather could be beneficial as the clouds would help Indian planes escape Pakistani radars.

“Maybe his own promises should be on his radar,” Priyanka Gandhi said at the rally in support of Congress candidate Amrinder Singh Raja Warring. In the Balakot airstrikes, Indian Air Force jets crossed over to Pakistani territory to target a Jaish e Mohammad terror training facility, days after the Pulwama terror attack in which over 40 soldiers were killed.(With Agency Inputs ).
