Indian forces were ready to wipe out Pakistan’s forward brigades after Balakot, claims Ex-IAF chief BS Dhanoa

Prime News, National (New Delhi), October 30:- Former Indian Air Force (IAF) chief BS Dhanoa has claimed that Indian armed forces were ready to wipe out Pakistan`s forward brigades had Islamabad`s “military adventure” been successful in response to the Balakot aerial strikes.

Recalling the turn of events and how India prepared its response to the Balakot strike, Dhanoa said that “our military posture was very offensive”.

The former IAF chief made these remarks on Thursday in wake of Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) leader Ayaz Sadiq’s remarks in Pakistan’s National Assembly that Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa was “shaking and perspiring” during a meeting to discuss Wing Commander Varthaman’s capture.

Ayaz Sadiq had said in the National Assembly that Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi had in an important meeting pointed out that if Pakistan did not release Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, India would attack Pakistan “that night by 9 pm”.

“Abhinandan`s father and I served together. So, when Abhinandan ejected I told him that we could not get Ahuja back, but will definitely get Abhinandan back. During the Kargil war, my flight commander Ahuja was captured and shot dead. That was playing on my mind. I told him that there are two parts. The main pressure on Pakistan was diplomatic and political. But there was also a military posture,” Dhanoa said.

“The way he (Pakistan MP) is saying that ‘Pair `kaanp rahe the’ (legs were trembling). It is because the military posture was very offensive… God forbid if there are military misadventure on 27th and hit some of our military installations, we were in a position to wipe out their forward brigades. They know what we are capable of,” he said. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
