Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday postponed his indefinite hunger strike for full statehood of Delhi, scheduled from March 1 in "view of the prevailing Indo-Pak situation".

His remarks came after the IAF Jets struck Jaish-e-Mohammed's(JeM) biggest camp in Pakistan on early Tuesday in a major "preemptive" action killing a large number of terrorists and trainers of the Pak-based terror group preparing to carry out suicide attacks in this country.

"In view of prevailing Indo Pak situation, I am postponing my upwas for full statehood of Delhi. We all stand as one nation today," he posted on Twitter.

Earlier, Kejriwal saluted the pilots of the Indian Air Force (IAF) after it carried out the strikes in Pakistan.

"I salute the bravery of Indian Air Force pilots who have made us proud by striking terror targets in Pakistan," Kejriwal said in a tweet.

In the early hours of Tuesday, the Indian Air Force carried out multiple aerial strikes at terror launch pads at various places in PoK, destroying control rooms of JeM and some other infrastructure, 12 days after the Pulwama terror attack.
