Sources said it appeared to be an attempt to put pressure on the government to come up with proof of the cross-LoC strikes that the army said had inflicted "significant casualties" on terrorists. Pakistan has denied India's claims of "surgical strikes" on terror launch pads.
In a three-minute video, Kejriwal, who never misses a chance to criticise Modi, starts by praising the army. He then hails Modi. "I may have 100 differences with the PM, but I salute him for his willpower to combat terrorism," the Delhi chief minister says before drawing Modi's attention to "Pakistan's false propaganda".

"My blood started boiling on seeing the report," Kejriwal says, referring to reports in the foreign media questioning India's claims and all but asking the government to release proof of the strikes
