State BJP minister Pankaja Munde landed herself in a controversy while she was addressing a campaign rally in Jalna on Sunday. In her controversial speech, she was criticising Congress president Rahul Gandhi and said that 'he should have a bomb tied to him and sent to another country for asking proof of surgical strikes'. Sh

"After the cowardly attack on our jawans, first time in the history surgical strike has been conducted and these people ask why did you conduct surgical strike?  Who did this? Show us proof? A bomb should have been tied around Rahul Gandhi and he should been sent to some other country. Then he would come to know the truth", she said.

Up in arm against the Bjp Minister, Congress came out to condemn her remarks.

“The cheap thoughts of BJP leaders are being proved once again. We don’t expect anything less than that from them. Those who label a martyr (Karkare) as anti-national are capable of going to any extent. We condemn Munde’s statement,” said Congress spokesperson Sachin Sawant.

On February 14, 2019, a blast occurred as a vehicle laden with explosives rammed into the CRPF convoy. Soon after the blast, shots were fired at the CRPF jawans. Nearly 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans were martyred and many others injured. 

In the aftermath of the Pulwama terror attack, India also revoked the Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status that was unilaterally accorded to Pakistan over 20 years ago. The government of India also resolved to isolate Pakistan on the global stage.

Global pressure is building on Pakistan to act against perpetrators of the attack. Despite Chinese reservations, New Delhi has urged the international community to back the naming of JeM leader Masood Azhar as a "UN-designated terrorist". 

Furthermore, On February 26, 2019, about 0300 hours - keeping in mind a window of least resistance of the Pakistani Air Force - a number of aircraft - 1 Embraer AEW-145, 1 IL-78 mid-air refueller, 16 Mirage 2000s and 4 SU-30s - took off from four Air Force bases and conducted an strike at Balakot that destryes JeM's terror camp.
