While taking a dig at Bharatiya Janata Party's President Amit Shah's remark 'Modi Ki Air Force', All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) MP Asaduddin Owaisi posted a tweet asking if Prime Minister Narendra was running the government or playing PUBG. Owaisi asked if everything that belongs to the country now belongs to PM Narendra Modi.
“Modi’s Army. Modi’s Air Force. Modi’s nuclear ‘cracker’. What used to belong to the nation has become Modi’s in five years,” Owaisi tweeted. “Is he running the country or playing PUBG?” Owaisi was referring to the online multiplayer PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds mobile video game.
"Forty-four of jawans were martyred in Pulwama terror attack. Earlier, nothing used to happen after such incidents. Narendra Modi ordered his Air Force on the 13th day (of the incident) and our aircraft blew the terrorists to pieces in Pakistan," Shah said at a rally in West Bengal. Shah's remark comes weeks after Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath described the armed forces as 'Modi Ji Ki Sena'.
On Monday, National Conference leader Omar Abdullah targeted Modi for his remarks on Indian nuclear capability with a reference to the video game. “Whether Diwali or Eid, both PM Modi and Ms [Mehbooba] Mufti have used the threat of nuclear annihilation as some sort of PUBG type game where they can just hit the reset button and life will carry on,” Abdullah had said. “Both of them would be well served to remember Hiroshima and Nagasaki when issuing such threats.”
