A day after Jammu and Kashmir saw one of the worst and sinful terrorist attacks in the state, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that every Indian is in anger and he wanted to assure the 130 crore people of India that the sacrifices of CRPF soldiers will “not go in vain”.
The prime minister was in Jhansi Uttar Pradesh to lay the foundation stone of a defence corridor in the Bundelkhand region. After launching the defence corridor and other development initiatives in Jhansi, PM Modi paid homage to the martyrs of the Pulwama terror attack and said that India will give a befitting reply to the perpetrators of the attack.
Calling for the integrity and peace Prime Minister Modi said that the whole nation should come together to give a befitting reply to the perpetrators of the dastardly terror attack.
“Indian armed forces have been given free rein to retaliate against the perpetrators of the attack. Permission granted to forces to take decisions about the timing, place and nature of their response… This is an India of new convention and policy,” PM Modi said.
Meanwhile, the Modi government has announced the withdrawal of trade benefits accorded to Pakistan under Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status.
Without even naming Pakistan, he addressed the public meeting in Jhansi and said that the attack was an outcome of the neighbouring country’s desperation and has been forced to go to different countries with a “begging bowl” to meet even its daily expenses.
He also added that Pakistan thinks that it can force India into a atrocious shape as well, asserting that it has been left behind in development and progress due to the useless policies it has adopted while India has been progressing soundly day and night due to the path it had chosen.
The ruling BJP and the opposition Congress have cancelled all political meetings of its top leaders after Thursday’s suicide attack carried out by Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed.
