ISLAMABAD, April 19 - Pakistan today rejected as �false and baseless� Prime Minister Narendra Modi�s remarks on the �surgical strikes� across the Line of Control in 2016 , saying �repeating a lie doesn�t turn it into the truth.�
Speaking at the Bharat Ki Baat, Sabke Saath programme in London yesterday, Modi had said India waited to inform Pakistan about the operation before disclosing it to the media and the people.
�I said before India gets to know, we should call Pakistan and tell them. We were calling them since 11 AM but they were scared to come on phone, at 12 we spoke to them and then told the Indian media,� Modi had said. � PTI
