During his re-election campaign trail, Mr Modi warned Pakistan of an attack, The Times reported. Mr Modi has national security the forefront of his campaign following recent strikes between India and Pakistan. Both countries have invaded each other’s airspace and fired along the Line of Control in Kashmir.
Mr Modi said at a rally: “India has stopped the policy of getting scared by Pakistan’s threats.
“Every day, Pakistan would make claims about having nuclear weapons.
“Even the media would bring out reports about Pakistan having nuclear weapons. So what do we have? Are we saving nuclear weapons for Diwali?
“I crushed Pakistan’s arrogance and forced it to roam around the world with a begging bowl.”
The threat comes just a week after the Prime Minister boasted India has 140 nuclear warheads, CCN reported.
He told crowds in Chhattisgarh: “We have the mother of nuclear bombs. I decided to tell Pakistan, do whatever you want to do but we will retaliate.”
Tensions have flared up since when 40 Indians were killed in a suicide attack from Pakistani based terrorist group, Jaish-e-Mohammed.
Mr Modi went on to refer to the Sri Lanka bombings at the rally last Sunday.
He claimed he is the only person who could stand up to terrorism.
He said: “Remember, when you cast your vote this time, you are not just playing the role of an alert citizen but also an alert soldier.
“In our neighbouring Sri Lanka, terrorists have played a bloody game. They killed innocent people.
“Who can do this? Can you think of any name aside from Modi? Can anybody else do this?”
