New Delhi, Feb 16 (IANS) The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) here on Saturday described the Pulwama terrorist attack on a CRPF convoy in Jammu and Kashmir as an attack on the country’s sovereignty and said Pakistan will never succeed in its nefarious design.
The BJP also took out a candle light march to pay homage to the 49 CRPF troopers who were killed in the terror attack on Thursday. The march was led by Delhi BJP chief and northeast Delhi MP Manoj Tiwari.
Besides Tiwari, New Delhi MP Meenakshi Lekhi, east Delhi MP Maheish Girri, party General Secretaries Siddharthan and Kuljeet Singh Chahal, party Vice-President Jai Prakash and several others participated in the march.
The Delhi BJP workers assembled at Gate No. 3 of Udyog Bhawan Metro Station in central Delhi. They marched up to the India Gate with candles in hands, raising slogans against terrorism and Pakistan.
They placed candles at the Amar Jawan Jyoti in India Gate and prayed for the departed souls and the speedy recovery of the injured troopers.
Addressing the workers, Tiwari said: “Pulwama terrorist attack is an attack on the sovereignty of India and the entire country will fight against terrorism and finish it. Pakistan will never succeed in its nefarious designs and India will remain united like a rock before the world.”
He also said the entire country was indebted to the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) troopers who were killed in the attack. “The souls of troopers will rest in peace only when we take revenge and the Indian Army is quite competent to do that,” he said.
Crores of Indians were standing with the families of the slain CRPF troopers, he added.
