New Delhi, March 1: Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah on Friday slammed Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan for not condemning the Pulwama terror attack and asked how can India trust him.
"I believe the track record of our government has been the best in dealing with terror since Independence... The maximum number of terrorists have been eliminated under BJP government led by Modi," he said.
Questioning Khan's silence on the Pulwama attack, he said, "The Pakistan PM should have criticized the Pulwama attacks at least once. How can we expect anything from him, or trust him? Maybe the situation is not in his control. At least he could have done lip service".
Forty CRPF personnel were killed on February 14 in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district when a Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist rammed an explosive-laden vehicle into a bus carrying security forces.
The BJP President also said that the return of pilot Abhinandan Varthaman was a diplomatic victory.
"Creating a situation for the return of pilot Abhinandan in such a short span of time is our diplomatic victory," he said.
Varthaman's MiG 21 was shot and he bailed out after bringing down one Pakistani F-16 fighter during a dogfight to repel a Pakistani attack on Wednesday morning. He has been in Pakistan since then.
Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan announced in Parliament on Thursday that Varthaman would be released on Friday as a "peace gesture".
Coming down hard on Opposition parties which alleged the government was "politicizing" the sacrifices of the armed forces, Shah said their joint resolution post the air strikes gave ammunition to Pakistan.
"The opposition's accusation against the BJP that it was politicizing the sacrifices of our forces has given happiness to Pakistan," Shah said
