Just weeks are left for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections and combed analysis has started pouring in on what the Indian Air Force bravely did on February 26, Tuesday.

With air strikes on JeM camps PM Modi locks election script

Even though the strikes beyond Line of Control (LoC) are not motivated by political considerations, but it would mean too much to most of the political parties in India amid mood of the country demanded retaliation for the Pulwama terror attack on February 14 in which more than forty CRPF jawans were martyred.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Bharatiya Janata Party have locked their political script with the attacks on Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) with 1000 kg of explosives. This script would be decisive, muscular and nationalist party willing to defend Indian interests. The rules of engagement now have changed with arch-rival.

Local factors such as caste, candidates, social engineering, alliances and religious polarization, matters most.

Meanwhile, Pakistan has threatened to be coming up with a response to the LoC attacks and the form of it is not clear.
