Prime Minister Narendra Modi today warned Pakistan that the Pulwama attack will not weaken India and those responsible will have to pay a “very heavy price”.
In a hard-hitting speech, Modi said security forces will be given complete freedom to crack down on terrorism, and the “blood of the people is boiling”.
“Our neighbouring country thinks such terror attacks can weaken us, but their plans will not materialise,” he said at a function to flag off a new semi-high speed train from Delhi to Varanasi.
Yesterday, an explosives laden truck rammed into a CRPF convoy in Pulwama outside Srinagar. A car carrying around 300 kg explosives, driven by Jaish-e-Mohammed’s Adil Ahmad Dar rammed one of the 78 buses following which 44 jawans were martyred in the attack.
“My condolences to families of those martyred in the Pulwama attack, those behind the terror strike will pay a very heavy price,” Modi said.
“I am thankful to all nations which condemned the Pulwama attack and urge them to come together to crush terrorism,” the prime minister said.
