#EntireCloudCover: Modi’s Radar Cloud Cover Remark Leaves Social Media in Splits

Did Vijay Mallya, Nirav Modi, Mehul Choksi escape India on a cloudy night?

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s remark about his genius suggestion that clouds would provide radar cover to Indian Air Force jets headed for Balakot strike set social media on fire.

In an interview to News Nation when journalist Peenaz Tyagi asked him about what transpired on the night of the airstrike, February 26, the PM said, “It was raining that night very heavily… We weren’t sure if we would be able to go or not… experts opined that we should change the day of the strike…I thought that there are clouds… there is rain… there is a benefit, it can provide us cover from radars. Then ultimately, I said, there are clouds, let’s go. ”

BJP Twitter handles eventually deleted the tweet that had quoted the PM. However, the damage was already done.

#EntireCloudCover has been trending on Twitter since then, with Twitteratis mocking the the PM’s ignorance in full swing. The hashtag is a jibe at PM Modi’s controversial ‘Entire Political Science’ degree.

Political leaders ripped into the PM’s ingenious solution in the face of actual experts weighing in on the matter. Some suggested the threat that such thinking poses to India’s national security.
