    Chairman of the Overseas Indian National Congress Sam Pitroda questioned the death toll in the Balakot airstrike conducted by the Indian Air Force in response to Pulwama terror attack.“I would like to know a little more because I read reports in the New York Times and other newspapers. Did we really attack? We really killed 300 people? I don’t know that. As a citizen, I am entitled to know and if I ask it is my duty to ask, that doesn’t mean I’m not a nationalist, That doesn’t mean I am on this side or that side. We need to know the facts. If you say 300 people were killed, I need to know that. We all need to know that, people of India need to know that and then comes global media which says nobody was killed. I look bad as an Indian citizen,” said Pitroda. (Hindustan Times)read more
