He said, 'We knew where the terrorist camps are in Pakistan and we were ready. But whether to execute the strike or not was a political decision. Please tell that after Dhanoa, the command of the Air Force is now in the hands of Air Chief Marshal Rakesh Kumar Singh Bhadauria.
According to the report of the Times of India, he said that after the attack on Parliament in December 2001, the Indian Air Force had proposed punitive action against Pakistan through air strike. Which was not accepted. Pakistan maintains a fear of danger from India among its people.
Former Air Chief Marshal said that if peace had come, Pakistan would have lost many of its privileges. He said that Pakistan deliberately keeps the matter of Kashmir warm. According to him, Pakistan is involved in the fight of propaganda and will continue to attack. Dhanoa said, "The Air Force has the capability to fight small, fast wars and any future war will be on land, air, sea and space."
According to Dhanoa, a major challenge before India is that there are two nuclear-armed countries in its neighborhood. Of course, he did not name any country but he meant from China and Pakistan. Later during the question-and-answer session, Dhanoa said that India's nuclear capacity is on land, sea and air. At the same time, China has developed a modern air force which depends on the quality.
To avenge the Pulwama attack, on 26 February 2019, the Air Force undertook an air strike on terrorist camps in Pakistan. Former Air Chief Marshal said that this strike had shocked Pakistan and the Pakistani Air Force had no information about it. He said, "There is a lack of joint planning between his defense forces and his morale is low."
