NEW DELHI: In response to the queries posed by country's major political parties and media persons, the Indian prime minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday called opposition leaders Pakistan’s "poster boys" for seeking proof of government claims of causalities in Balakot strike.

"They abuse Modi here and get clapping in Pakistan. They have become poster boys of Pakistan,” Modi said at  an election rally in Madhya Pradesh’s Dhar district.

Modi accused the Congress party of echoing Pakistan’s line after  the opposition sought details of the casualties as Indian government claimed inflicted in the air strikes.

Modi  government and   Indian military officials   have failed to provide any evidence or proof to  support their claims of  causalities in Balkot strike  that provoked Pakistan to retaliate over Indian air force violation of airspace along LOC.

Last week, Pakistan  Air Force (PAF)  shot dawn two Indian warplanes violating its airspace and  captured  an Indian pilot Wing Commander Abhinandan, who was later released  on Friday as peace gesture . The move was widely lauded by the world leaders and dragged   admiration for  Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan for his stance to bring stability in the region.
