Every tear shed in Pulwama attack aftermath will be avenged: PM Narendra Modi
New Delhi : Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that each drop of tear that has shed in the aftermath of Pulwama attack will be avenged. Angered with the cowardly act, he said that 'New India' will not tolerate anyone who will dare to target our soldiers.
Addressing a public meeting in Maharashtra he said anger over the horrific assault in Jammu and Kashmir is palpable in the country and all eyes are moist.
Modi paid tributes to the slain soldiers and hailed their families.
"I have come here at a time when there is anger and eyes are moist. I salute the brave soldiers and the mothers who gave birth to them," he said.
"Apart from the government, as citizens of the country, it is our responsibility to stand by the families of those who sacrificed everything for the country.
"This is the time for mourning and to show restrain and sensitivity," he said.
"I want to assure each family who lost their loved one that each drop of tear will be avenged (aasu ka pura pura jawab liya jayega)," Modi declared.
He also announced that the time has changed, the world would experience it soon.
"Ours is a new India with new methods and policies, and the world will experience this now. Those who spray bullets or those who provide guns and bombs to target our soldiers, will not be spared. We will not allow them to sleep in peace," Modi asserted.
At least 40 CRPF personnel were martyred in a ghastly terror strile in Pulwama.
