New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that the truth behind Pulwama terror attack has been revealed after confession of a Pakistani minister in Parliament and slammed the opposition for raising questions in the aftermath of it.
In a sensational admission, senior Pakistani minister Fawad Chaudhry Thursday admitted that his country was responsible for the Pulwama terrorist attack in Jammu and Kashmir in 2019 that killed 40 CRPF personnel and brought the two countries to the brink of a war.
The PM slammed the opposition for indulging in politics after the Pulwama attack.
“The country can never forget that some people were not saddened at the sacrifice of the security personnel during the Pulwama attack. At that time, these people were only doing politics. I request them not to do such politics in the interest of the nation,” the PM said addressing a gathering after visiting the Statue of Unity in Gujarat.
Though the PM did not specifically named Pakistan and only said that claims made in Parliament of a neighbouring country but the reference was obvious.
On February 14, 2019, 40 Central Reserve Police Force personnel were killed when a jeep laden with explosives had hit a convoy of vehicles carrying security personnel on the Jammu-Srinagar highway at Lethpora in Pulwama.
Pak minister admits country’s role in Pulwama terrorist attack
“Humne Hindustan ko ghus ke maara (We hit India in their home). Our success in Pulwama, is a success of this nation under the leadership of Imran Khan. You and we are all part of that success,” science & technology Minister Fawad Chaudhry said in the National Assembly during a debate.
When some of his fellow lawmakers objected to his mention of “success in Pulwama”, the minister said that “after the Pulwama incident, the way Pakistan went inside the Indian territory to target it, the entire media in India was ashamed of it.”
However, he didn’t retract his statement about “success in Pulwama” under Prime Minister Khan’s leadership. (Agencies)
