ISLAMABAD: Another Indian attack will have serious consequences, Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has warned India. He told a press conference on Sunday that he had information collected by Intelligence that a poll-bound India will venture another conflict between April 16 and 20 to evoke public support for another term for the ruling party in office.

India, he said, India might again "stage a Pulwama-style attack" to justify "another military adventure" against Pakistan. Qureshi said Pakistan will be left with no other option but to forcefully retaliate.

India sees Qureshi statement as an attempt to sheild another terrorist attack in Kashmir and preempt any international outrage that may make Pakistan's position vulnerable. The Indian Government has reiterated its position on the issue and said that Pakistan will have to take "credible and irreversible steps" against terrorists operating from its soil and in dismantling the terror havens and training camps there. India also underlined its resolve to respond firmly to any cross-border terrorist attack.

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan also had accused India of stagemanaging the Pulwama terror attack while speaking in the national assembly after india's assault on Balakot terror camp deep inside Pakistan.

Last weekend, in a tweet, Imran Khan said the ruling party in India is trying to whip up a war hysteria to mobilise mass support to win the forthcoming parliamentary elections there.

Accusing the ruling BJP party of making false claims of downing a Pakistani F-16 fighter during the February air battle, Khan said the US had made a count of the fighters in Pakistani fleet and found none missing.

"The truth always prevails and is always the best policy. BJP's attempt to win elections through whipping up war hysteria and false claims of downing a Pak F 16 has backfired with US Defence officials also confirming that no F16 was missing from Pakistan's fleet," the Pakistani Prime Minister said in the tweet.

Khan was quoting from American magazine 'Foreign Policy' which reported that the US made a count of the F-16 fighters with Pakistan.
