Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray on Saturday (March 9) while addressing party workers during the 13th foundation day of MNS has predicted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi could stage another Pulwama-like attack before Lok Sabha elections.
“Our jawans have been killed and we are told we should not ask questions. I had earlier predicted that before the 2019 elections, Narendra Modi and this government would create a war-like situation. They are so predictable. I want to ask why did this attack happen now?” Thackeray said.
While rejecting Indian claims of killing more than 300 terrorists in failed airstrike in Balakot, Pakistan, he asked “We have numerous figures being touted about the number of terrorists killed by BJP leaders. Let me tell you, even if 10 terrorists had been killed, Pakistan would not have sent back Wing Commander Abhinandan. Would we have sent back a Pakistani pilot if our men were killed?” Thackeray asked.
“I feel that next month, before elections, another Pulwama-like attack will be manufactured. Attention will get diverted and they (BJP leaders) will start giving lessons in patriotism to everyone. They have realised that this is the only way they can cover up for their failures in governance,” he said.
