New Delhi: BJP President Amit Shah on Friday condemned the Pulwama terror attack that left 45 CRPF personnel dead and called upon to all political parties to rise above politics and come together on the issue of national security.
“These are times when we all must come together and strengthen our resolve to make India stronger and safer. I appeal to the political class – let us rise above politics and show that we are together when it comes to matters of national security. Nothing matters above India!” he said in a series of tweets.
Shah’s remarks came a day after Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala targeted the Modi government for its failure to counter “Pakistan-sponsored terrorism” and called it to be the “weakest government” in the history of independent India.
The BJP President said that 130 crore Indians stand in complete solidarity with the families of the courageous heroes who devoted their life in service of the nation.
“Generations to come will remember their valour. We pray the injured get well soon. The horrific attack in Pulwama has saddened the entire nation. We strongly condemn the barbaric mentality that speeds such kind of hate and violence. The Prime Minister has assured the nation that the sacrifices of our martyrs shall not go in vain,” he said.
The toll from Thursday’s terror attack on a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) convoy in Jammu and Kashmir rose to 45 on Friday as two more troopers succumbed to their injuries.
