Defence Min salutes IAF on 2nd anniversary of Balakot air strikes

New Delhi, Feb 26 (UNI) Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday saluted the courage and diligence of the Indian Air Force (IAF) on the second anniversary of Balakot air strikes.

"On the anniversary of Balakot Air Strikes, I salute the exceptional courage and diligence of the Indian Air Force. The success of Balakot strikes has shown India's strong will to act against terrorism. We are proud of our Armed Forces who keep India safe and secure," the Defence Minister tweeted.
The air strike was conducted days after Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) attacked a CRPF convoy on the Jammu-Srinagar highway near Pulwama in South Kashmir on February 14, 2019, killing over 40 CPRF personnel.
On February 26, the Indian warplanes crossed the de facto border in the disputed region of Kashmir and dropped bombs in the vicinity of the town of Balakot in Pakistan. A large number of militants were killed in the attack.

Mr Kejriwal said, "I went to inspect the LNJP Hospital yesterday, talked to the doctors and nurses there. I would like to thank all the doctors, nurses and paramedic staff on behalf of all the Delhiites. They have been working for the past year. Even now, they are working with great persistence. I had a conversation with them yesterday. We are focusing on hospital management. In the past few days, I received messages from people who stated that 'I went to this hospital, there were no beds available. We went to the other, but with no success'.'
'The app that we launched during the first wave in June, is still working. If you tested positive and require access to the hospital, the app shows which hospital does have availability of beds. All of you must download the app and check where the beds are available. Take the patient to that particular hospital straight away instead of going from one hospital to the other," the Delhi Chief Minister said.
