Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan reckons that the tensions between India and Pakistan will not end until the upcoming general elections in India. Pakistan PM went on to add that PM Modi could be extra-motivated to go for Balakot Airstrike type ‘misadventure’ any time soon.
Khan stated till the general elections come to a close in India, the escalating tensions between the two countries will be high. “The danger is not over. The situation will remain tense till forthcoming general elections in India. We are already prepared to avert any aggression from India,” Dawn quoted Mr Khan as saying.
The tie-up between India and Pakistan have not been that good post the February 14 Pulwama terror attack in which more than 40 CRPF personnel lost their lives. In reply, India deftly responded by carrying out air strikes across the Line of Control targeting Pakistan-backed terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed camps.
However, in the next day, Pakistan had made an attempt to violate Indian air space but the Indian Air Force acted quickly and even shot down an F-16 fighter jet.
Then Indian MiG-21 Bison also crashed where the Indian pilot Wing Commander Abhinandan was seized by the Pakistani forces. Wing Commander Abhinandan returned home within 60 hours as Pakistan was under massive international pressure, in what was a diplomatic win for India.
After that, a couple of Pakistan UAV drones happened to intrude Indian air space but the IAF managed to bring all of them down.
