Even as India carried out air strikes inside Pakistan early today and destroyed terror camps, opposition leaders have welcomed the move. Congress president Rahul Gandhi Tuesday heaped laurels on the pilots of the Indian Air Force after air strikes on Pakistan. "I salute the pilots of the IAF," he tweeted and also put out the Indian flag along with his tweet.
The Congress also tweeted, lauding the role of the Indian Air Force in keeping Indians safe with its consistent and determined effort. The party said in its official Twitter handle: "We salute the @IAF_MCC for their consistent & determined effort to keep Indians safe. Jai Hind." Delhi Chief Minister and AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal today saluted the pilots of the Indian Air Force after it carried out air strikes in Pakistan.
"I salute the bravery of Indian Air Force pilots who have made us proud by striking terror targets in Pakistan," he tweeted. According to reports, today's strikes involving several fighter jets of the Indian Air Force successfully destroyed camps belonging to Pakistan-based terror outfits in Balakot in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. However, the Pakistan Army on Tuesday alleged that the Indian Air Force violated the Line of Control (LoC) in Muzaffarabad sector.
