PM Modi further lashed out at the Congress and its regional allies PDP and NC for forging an opportunist alliance that stands against the interests of the country and said, "The recent statements given by one of Congress' allies here asking for a separate Prime Minister for Jammu and Kashmir reveals how this alliance goes against our country". Modi had criticised the Abdullah and Mufti families in his campaign during the elections in 2014 as well.

"Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has openly supported Narendra Modi as a pre-condition for talks on bilateral resolution of the Kashmir dispute which clearly shows that there is a tactical understanding between the BJP and the Pakistan Prime Minister", the Congress leader told PTI.

"Did we deflate their nuclear threat or not?" he asked the crowd that chanted "Modi, Modi, Modi" in response. Shortly afterwards, Pakistani jets were reported to have headed into Indian airspace, prompting India to respond. But its Prime Minister Imran Khan did call on both sides to pull back from the brink in February because of the "weapons we have".

Modi vowed that India would not give up its claim to Kashmir, the country's only Muslim-dominated state, which has been divided between two countries and been the subject of two wars between the neighbours since their independence in 1947.

India has long accused Pakistan of supporting militants in Kashmir, a charge its neighbour denies.

Cricketer Alex Hepburn facing jail after being found guilty of rape
The judge Jim Tindal then cleared to Alex Hepburn that there is only one sentence and it is inevitable for him now to go to jail. Prosecutors said Hepburn had been "fired up" by his desire to win the competition.

The Pak-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad has claimed responsibility for the attack.

In the election season, political leaders are on a campaign spree and the rhetoric is again touching its height.

Mr Modi slammed the Congress for raising doubts on the Balakot airstrikes and said that the Opposition party has never trusted the valour of the Armed Forces.

The government now faces widespread opposition in Kashmir to a plan to scrap a constitutional article that gives the Himalayan region a special autonomous status within India.
