But that doesn’t mean they have reserved it for Eid,” she said.
Addressing an election rally in Rajasthan’s Barmer town on Sunday, PM Modi had said the strategic experts earlier used to warn that Pakistan had the nuclear button. “What do we have then? Have we kept our nuclear bomb for Diwali,” he asked, while affirming that India had the capability to launch nuclear attacks from land, air and sea.
Don’t know why PM Modi must stoop so low & reduce political discourse to this” she said.
