AVM Kapoor stated that India has enough evidence to prove that Pakistan deployed US-made F-16 fighter jets to target Indian military installations in Jammu and Kashmir.

His comments came on a day Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman was captured by the Pakistani military after they downed one MiG 21.

"It is shameful that while India awaits the return of Wing Commander Abhinandan, our Prime Time PM can not stop campaigning even for a few minutes", the Congress tweeted. "We stand as one nation, action taken by our government is to safeguard our nation & ensure safety of our citizens, not to win a few extra seats".

Prime Minister Narendra Modi chaired a "high-level" security meeting Thursday evening at his residence amid India-Pakistan tensions. It was read by Congress president Rahul Gandhi.

A day after 21 opposition parties huddled and came out with a resolution against BJP government charging it with politicising the sacrifice of the courageous hearts of Indian Army, the leaders heading SP-BSP alliance - Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati- in UP took to social media on Thursday to launch another offensive on PM Narendra Modi accusing him of being insensitive towards national concerns.

He was interacting with about one crore BJP workers in 15,000 locations through what the party said was the "world's largest video conference".

Speaking to reporters in Karnataka's Chitradurga, the former Karnataka chief minister said that the preemptive air strikes by the Indian Air Force will help his party, the BJP, win 22 out of 28 parliamentary seats in the state in this year's Lok Sabha polls. Congress cancelled its CWC and the Opposition is worrying about unity of the nation. "Modi-ji is getting down to strengthen polling booths and the BJP is busy with election rallies", Singh had tweeted.

The Prime Minister did not stop there. "At a time when India is facing hostility of war and country needs firm leadership, PM Narendra Modi instead of concentrating on the matters of national security trying to serve political interest by addressing his BJP workers is ridiculous besides betrayal of national sentiments", she tweeted.
