- ‘It is Now Pakistan’s Turn to Weep’: Modi Boasts about India’s ‘Mother of Nuclear Bombs’ at Rally
Amid rising tensions, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi says he has called Pakistan’s nuclear bluff by launching airstrikes while also claiming that New Delhi has the “mother of nuclear bombs.”
“Earlier, terrorists from Pakistan would come here and go back after conducting an attack. Pakistan would threaten us, saying it has the nuclear bomb and will press the button,” Prime Minister Modi said at a campaign rally at Surendranagar in Gujarat on Wednesday.
In the past, our people would weep, go around the world saying Pakistan did this, did that… It is now Pakistan’s turn to weep.
We have the mother of nuclear bombs. I decided to tell them, do whatever you want to do.
The bombastic rhetoric comes amid ongoing tensions and tit-for-tat airstrikes in recent weeks, which have been marred by sporadic cross-border firefights and violence in the aftermath of a suicide bomb attack in Pulwama in February which killed 40 Indian paramilitary officers.
