Minister Of State External Affairs and Former Army Chief VK Singh slammed opposition party members who are questioning Indian Air Force’s Air Strike operation said that they should be tied to the aircraft in next operation.
IAF operation which targeted Jaish-e-Mohammed terror camps in Balkot in Pakistan.
He also takes dig at people who are raising questions on number of terrorists killed in the February 26 Air Force operation.
Union Minister told to News Agency ANI, "Next time when India does something like that, I feel that those who raise questions should be tied under the aircraft and taken along. When the bombs are dropped, they can see the targets and after that they can get off, count the casualties and come back.”
Union Min VK Singh: Agli baar jab Bharat kuch kare toh mujhe lagta hai ki vipakshi jo ye prashna uthate hain, unko hawai jahaz ke neeche baandh ke le jayein, jab bomb chale toh vahan se dekh lein target, uske baad unko vahin par utar dein, uske baad vo gin le aur wapas aajayein. pic.twitter.com/DsEy8bzVv8— ANI (@ANI) March 6, 2019
Earlier in the morning, minister taking a dig on those asking for a number of terrorists killed in the IAF air strikes, tweeted, “Last night at 3.30 am there were too many mosquitoes, so I used HIT (repellant). Now should I start counting how many mosquitoes I killed or should I go back to sleep?". VK Singh wrote on twitter in Hindi. However, he did not mention IAF strike in the tweet.

तो मैंने HIT मारा।
अब मच्छर कितने मारे, ये गिनने बैठूँ,
या आराम से सो जाऊँ? #GenerallySaying
However, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh referred to “300 mobile phones” active in the JeM camp where IAF carried out the strike.
Home Minister said the National Technical Research Organisation ( NTRO) has stated there were 300 mobile phones active prior to the strike.“Were these phones being used by trees in that area,” asked Singh
He further stated that those who want to know the number of terrorists killed in the IAF strike “should go to Pakistan and count”.
On Monday, Indian Air Force head Air Chief Marshal B S Dhanoa said the India Air Force doesn’t count human casualties and counts whether targets were hit or not.
