Jamshedpur, Feb. 26 : Jubilation ruled the city as people celebrated India’s restricted air-strike at Balakot in Pakistan carried out early Tuesday morning. People burst crackers distributed `ladoo’ and danced to the tune of the reverberating drums at Sakchi roundabout. Several traders distributed sweets at Sakchi Jhanda Chowk. A group of traders holding National Flag raised slogans in favour of motherland. People in Bistupur, Jugsalai, Kadma, Sonari, Mango and Jugsalai smeared themselves in `gulal.’
� The attack on our soldiers on February 14 was disheartening, when I came to know that Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed killed so many CRPF jawans by triggering bomb I was borken. We were waiting the India government to retaliate, but the retaliation would be so strong I had not imagined it,� said a Mohan Lal, a trader at Sakchi.
Another trader said that India has retaliated on the Terrorist Camps in Pakistan for the recent Pulvama Attack in which 49 CRPF Jawana were killed. A group of Mirage 2000 Jet Fighters crossed over the Line of Control and struck a major Terrorist Camp.
The attack happened in Balkot which is just 60 Kilometres away from Abbottabad where Pakistan Army is placed. This is being termed as a Second Surgical Attack. Political Experts say that India may not hesitate for the war as such scenario may benefit the ruling party in the upcoming elections. A BJP worker said it is an apt response to a land which has been harbouring terrorists for decades now.
He said that JeMhad claimed responsibility for a February 14 suicide bomb attack in Kashmir that killed 40 Indian paramilitaries. Earlier, Pakistan accused Indian warplanes of crossing into its airspace over the ceasefire line in Kashmir before dropping the payloads. JeM is one of several militant groups fighting Indian troops in Kashmir, with the rebels experiencing a resurgence after a popular rebel commander�s death in 2016 triggered months of mass street protests.
