Terming the claims made by Indian government and the Air Force regarding conducting an airstrike in Pakistan near Bala Kote as dubious, Indian politician Ajay Singh, has said that the reality behind India's self proclaimed airstrike will be exposed in the next 10 days.

Singh, a Congress MP, also raised questions on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's claims of Indian Air Force destroying Jaish-e-Mohammed camps, while referring to the foreign media reports that there was no damage due to the airstrikes in Pakistan.

He said, "A few days ago, bombs were dropped on Pak. He [PM Modi] said that everything in Balakot was destroyed. NY Times reported that there was no damage due to air strikes. If not today, in the next 10 days, the whole sequence of events will be exposed."

Meanwhile, several other Congress leaders have raised doubts over Indian Air Force airstrikes across the Line of Control (LoC) in Pakistan.

On Sunday, senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh said that India should reveal the evidence of the airstrikes on terror launch pads, like the United States did after killing Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden.

While talking to journalists, the former Madhya Pradesh chief minister said, "I am not raising questions on the operation, but in the technical age, satellite pictures are possible. Like USA had given solid proof of the Osama operation to the world, we should also do it for our air strike."
