“The prime minister did not sleep a wink all night and remained intimately involved in the operations,”- Sources on PM Modi’s involvement in Balakot Air Strike

Showing exemplary courage and calibre, Indian Air Force has successfully conducted Air Strikes on Jaish-e-Mohammad camps by dropping 1000 kgs bombs in Balakot destroying them in significant numbers and killing more than 300 terrorists. As Indian soldiers, media houses and general public, already enraged by pulwama attack that took place exactly 13 days before and had claimed lives of 44 CRPF Jawans are applauding the step, Pakistan as usual is denying any damage caused by the strike. Pakistani media is on fire already taking funny jibes on India. However, Indians- be it commoners, actors, players or even politicians belonging to parties other than the ruling party, are extending hearty congratulations to the Indian defence.

As updates are still coming in, a close source of India’s Prime Minister has revealed an interesting aspect on the condition of anonymity. We’re neither showering undue credits/praises on our PM nor calling it a political stunt by the sitting Government in anyway. But, we can certainly not decline the contribution and pivotal role played by the PM making the mission a grand success.

The source mentions that the PM missed an entire night’s sleep and was closely monitoring the strike from the control room throughout.


Quoting from Hindustan TimesModi attended a News18 television channel conclave at the Taj Palace hotel on Monday night, and left for home at 9.15 pm. After reaching his 7 Lok Kalyan Marg residence in 10 minutes, he took a light meal and became involved in the operation, going through the preparations for the air strike on the training camp. He was in contact with Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, National Security Adviser Ajit Doval and Air Force Chief B.S. Dhanoa throughout the crucial operation.

Though it’s not clear from where the PM was monitoring, but he signed off only after ensuring that all the brave hearts are back safely and congratulating them at around 4:30 in the morning.

He didn’t even nap before he engaged himself in the next day’s schedule. He attended the meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Security at his residence around 10 am. He then rushed to the Rashtrapati Bhawan, where President Ram Nath Kovind conferred the Gandhi Peace Prize for 2015-2018. Later, Modi flew to Rajasthan for a rally and returned to New Delhi to attend an ISKCON event.

This man is 68 YO, to mention here. Elections are close. Hence, it’s not unusual for 1.3 billion of Indian population to divide into two groups- his fans who are all praises for him and opponents, who are calling it his masterstroke before Loksabha Elections and are already congratulating him for his win, sarcastically.

But meanwhile, let’s honestly appreciate the decision taken by the leader of world’s largest democracy and his dedication for the same.
