A Congress victory "by mistake" in the Lok Sabha election will see Pakistan celebrate Diwali, Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani said in Mehsana at the launch of the Bharatiya Janata Party's 'Vijay Sankalp' rally. "The people of the country will ensure Narendra bhai (Narendra Modi) wins on May 23, after which there will be grief in Pakistan," the BJP leader said. Rupani attacked Congress leader Sam Pitroda for demanding proof of the Balakot airstrike.
"The world knows Pakistan shelters terrorists. And Sam Pitroda, Rahul Gandhi's teacher, says it is wrong to blame Pakistan for the act of five-seven youths (who carried out the Pulwama attack) .... Congress leaders speak the language of Pakistan," Mr. Rupani said.
The chief minister accused the Opposition of insulting the armed forces. "Who are you trying to support by negating the words spoken by the heads of the armed forces (after the Balakot airstrike)?" he asked.
