New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that perpetrators of Pulwama attack act will be punished and the perpetrators and those “aiding and abetting terrorists” have made a “big mistake” and will have to “pay a heavy price”. Stating that free hand has been given to the security forces to act, PM dared Pakistan not to live in illusion that it can destabilize India.
He was addressing a public gathering today before flagging off Vande Bharat Express between New Delhi and Varansi from New Delhi Railway Station.
While paying tributes to the soldiers killed in Pulwama, he said that they have laid down their lives for the country andoffered condolences to the families who have lost their near and dear ones.
“I know there is deep anger, your blood boils looking at what has happened. At this moment, there are expectations and the feelings of a strong response which is quite natural. We have given full freedom to the security forces. We have full faith in the bravery and valour of our security forces. I am hopeful that the patriotic fervour will ensure that people will provide correct information to our agencies so that we can intensify our efforts to crush terror,” Modi said.
“I want to tell the terror outfits and those aiding and abetting them that they have made a big mistake. They will have to pay a very heavy price for their actions.Let me assure the nation that those behind this attack, the perpetrators of this attack will be punished,” the Prime Minister said.
Narendra Modi said that he understands the sentiments of those who are criticising them but they should rise above politics and have to stand united in this sensitive and emotional moment.
“We should speak in one voice and rise above politics. The message which should go across the world is that we are one nation, one voice in our fight against terror, the fight which we have to win. Our neighbour which is already isolated by the global community is in a state of illusion, if it thinks that it can demoralize India with its dastardly acts and nefarious designs. Let me state categorically that it should stop day dreaming to destabilize India. This neighbour of ours which is in a state of economic despair,” Mdi said.
