India Prime Minister Narendra Modi has issued warning to Pakistan and terror groups operating from across the border after CRPF jawans were killed in a horrific terror attack in Kashmir’s Pulwama on Thursday.
PM Modi, who was speaking to an event to flag off the country’s fastest train Vande Bharat Express, said the country will give a “strong response” to this attack. The “blood of the people is boiling” and forces behind the act of terrorism will be definitely be punished, he said.
Terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammed has claimed responsibility for the Pulwama attack that ripped into a CRPF convoy that was feared to have killed 44 jawans.
Without naming the western neighbour in his speech, PM Modi said “if our neighbour, which is totally isolated in the world and thinks it can destabilise India through its tactics and conspiracies, then it is making a huge mistake.”
Turning to the Pak-based terror groups, the honourable Prime Minister said, “I want to tell the terror groups that you have committed a grave crime. The perpetrators of terror will pay a heavy price. I assure the nation that we will punish the perpetrators of terror.”
“A strong reply will be given to this attack. When all the nations will fight together against terror, it will be eliminated. The jawans have sacrificed their lives for the country. I assure everyone that we will take every step to bring the perpetrators of the crime to book,” he concluded.
