PM, DM, LG pay homage to Pulwama attack victims

‘Their bravery motivates every Indian’
NEW DELHI, Feb 14: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today paid homage to the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel who lost their lives in a terrorist attack on their convoy in Pulwama in 2019, and said their bravery and supreme sacrifice motivate every Indian to work towards a strong and prosperous country.
In the attack by Pakistan-sponsored terrorists in the south Kashmir district, 40 CRPF personnel made the supreme sacrifice.
In a retaliatory strike, the Indian Air Force had carried out an airstrike in Pakistan’s Balakote on February 26, 2019, targeting terrorist camps.
Modi tweeted, “I pay homage to all those martyred in Pulwama on this day in 2019 and recall their outstanding service to our nation. Their bravery and supreme sacrifice motivates every Indian to work towards a strong and prosperous country.”
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh also paid tribute to CRPF jawans martyred in the dastardly Pulwama terror attack on this day three years ago.
“This country will never forget the sacrifice of the brave CRPF jawans martyred in Pulwama in 2019. I pay my tribute to them,” Singh tweeted.
Meanwhile, Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha paid tribute to the CRPF personnel who attained martyrdom in the 2019 Pulwama terror attack and resolved to eliminate the menace of terrorism in the Union Territory.
“The nation will forever be grateful to our brave soldiers of @crpfindia and their families,” Sinha said in a tweet.
He said the Jammu and Kashmir administration is determined to eliminate the menace of terrorism. (PTI)
