Congress president Rahul Gandhi who addressed the press in New Delhi on Pulwama attack said he supports the Modi government in the fight against the terrorism.
Expressing his anguish over the deadly attack, Rahul Gandhi said, “This is a terrible tragedy. This type of violence done against our soldiers is absolutely disgusting. We are all standing together with our jawans. No force can divide or break this country.”
“This is a time of mourning, sadness, and respect. We are fully supporting the government of India and our security forces. We are not going to get into any other conversation apart from this,” Rahul Gandhi added.
Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said, “Today is the day of mourning. Our country has lost close to 40 armed forces jawans and our foremost duty is to convey to their families that we are with them. We shall never compromise with the terrorist forces.”
Over 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) soldiers lost their lives and more than a dozen others injured on Thursday when a Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terrorist rammed an explosives-laden SUV into their bus in Pulwama district.
