Modi’s cloud cover logic is painfully embarrassing: Mehbooba Mufti

New Delhi | Responding to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statement on the using clouds as cover to escape the Pakistani radar during the February 26 air strike in Balakot, PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti said that the logic is painfully embarrassing.

Taking on Twitter, the former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister wrote, “No secret that Balakot strikes failed to hit the intended target. Was it because PM overruled the advice of IAF & authorised airstrikes in bad weather? Cloud cover logic is painfully embarrassing. Remind me again, why is RG derided as Pappu?”

She further added that BJPs ability to suspend logic in its quest to win another term is mind-numbingly fatuous. “I was raked over the coals for questioning veracity of Balakot strikes. But seeing Pak media & journos troll PM on cloud gaffe is awfully embarrassing. BJPs ability to suspend logic in its quest to win another term is mind numbingly fatuous. Our armed forces don’t deserve this,” wrote Mufti.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday in the latest revelation in the February 26, Balakot Airstrike stated that the experts had suggested that the date of the strike should be changed due to bad weather conditions but he stated that the clouds would help to pilots to escape the Radars of the Pakistani Armed forces.

PM Modi in an interview on News Nation was asked about the night of Aerial strike on Pakistan’s Balakot on the night of 26, February 2019. PM in his reply said there was a confusion regarding the date of the airstrike depending on the weather condition on the day. He said experts pointed out that weather had become bad and even contemplated re-scheduling the strikes. To which he said that there are clouds and it could benefit the IAF jets from escaping the Pakistani radars.
