For Indians February 14 marks an important day as it reminds of Pulwama terror attack. Our Indian forces sacrificed their lives to safeguard our country when the security was at stake. On Sunday, PM Modi paid tribute to the 40 CRPF jawans who sacrificed lives in a militant attack in the Pulwama district of South Kashmir in 2019.
“No Indian can forget this day. Two years ago, the Pulwama terror attack occurred. We pay homage to all the martyrs. We are proud of our security forces and their bravery will continue to inspire future generations,” said the prime minister while addressing a public event in Chennai.
On February 14, 2019, 40 personnel of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) were killed after a suicide bomber rammed an IED-laden truck into a CRPF convoy. The attack took place when a convoy of 78 buses with 2,500 CRPF personnel was heading to Srinagar from Jammu.
While paying homage to the slain soldiers, Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu said he stands in solidarity with the jawans’ families. https://twitter.com/VPSecretariat/status/1360795434533363716?s=20
