Islamabad has denied Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s insinuation of Pakistan’s involvement in the Pulwama attack by alluding to remarks made by its Federal Minister Fawad Hussain Chaudhry in the National Assembly.
In a statement, the Pakistan Foreign Office claimed the minister was referring to the response given by the Pakistan Armed Forces to India’s bombing of Balakot. However, the video clip has Hussain referring to Pulwama several times.
The Pakistan Foreign Office said it sees such observations as part and parcel of the BJP’s electoral strategy to galvanise voters’ support.
