Prime Minister Narendra Modi Sunday said he took the decision for the Indian Air Force to conduct Balakot air strikes as he thought that "the game should be played from where terrorism is being remote-controlled".
Addressing a 'main bhichowkidar' event, he said Pakistan "isin a fix because if it acknowledges the air strikes, it will have to acceptthat there was terror camp there".
"They have been saying that there are no terror camps. Nowthey have to hide it. They are not allowing anybody to go there. We've beentold Balakot area is being reconstructed by Pakistan to show that a school isbeing run there, so that people can be taken there and shown that no terrorcamp existed there," he said.
Those abusing Modi on Balakot air strikes are helpingPakistan with their statements, he said.
The event was beamed across the country at 500 places where gatherings of BJP workers, professionals, chowkidars (watchmen), traders, farmers among others will listen to Modi and interact with him through video-conferencing.
