The archived version of the post can be found here

Claim 1: Total terrorist attacks under UPA & NDA govt. are 109 & 626    

Fact: Total terror related incidents under UPA & NDA govt. are 9739  & 1219. So, the claim is FALSE.

According to the  2004-05  & 2013-14  annual reports of the Ministry of Home Affairs, the total terrorist attacks (terror related incidents) under the UPA government between 2004-2014 are 9739. And the total terrorist attacks (terror related incidents) under NDA government between 2014-2018 are 1219, of these 1213 have occurred in Jammu & Kashmir. So, the total number of terrorist attacks (terror related incidents) under the UPA govt. are more than that of NDA govt.
