Facts Check Analysis The data given to compare how things under NDA was more than the UPA is totally wrong. For example the facebook post says

  1. Terrorist attack under UPA: 109; NDA: 626
  2. Soldiers Killed UPA: 13; NDA 483
  3. Civilians Killed UPA: 12; NDA: 210
  4. Line Of Control Violation UPA: 563; NDA: 5596  

Like it can be seen above this picture has been widely shared by pro Congress supporters.  We did not find any relevant information guess where the data and statistics came from =. However there were records which pointed to the same place.

Line Of Control Violation UPA: 563; NDA: 5596

As per dailyexcelsior, a Kasmir daily, it reported of traffic violation which lead to the Kishtwar police challans 5596 vehicles, seizes 553  

The South Asia Terrorism Portal (SATP) is an indispensable resource to seek information, data, critical assessment and analysis on terrorism in South Asia. The data provided at SATP can be used for statistics on the figure quoted in the image..


From 2004 to 2013 a total if 7699 civilians were killed during UPA, comparing to 2014 to 2019, a total of 1230 civilians were killed.

UPA Security Force personnel killed during 2014 to 2013, were 3368, where  as under NDA from 2014 to 2019, a total of 906 were killed.

Terrorist killed during the UPA from 2004 to 2013 were more. A total of 9708 terrorist were killed under UPA, whereas a total of 2350 terrorist were killed under NDA.

So most of the data do not match the said content.
