Karnal (Haryana): Union Home Minister Amit Shah paid tributes to the martyrs of Pulwama as he was in Karnal, Haryana. Shah was entrusted to present the President’s Colour Award to Haryana Police on Tuesday. Amit Shah got emotional while remembering their supreme sacrifice as it clocks 4 years of the dastardly terror attack in Pulwama. “The names of those 40 soldiers will always remain etched with golden letters in India’s history of bravery and sacrifice. Their sacrifice has a huge contribution to the country’s progress,” Amit Shah said while remembering the horrific day of cowardly Pulwama attack on CRPF Jawans in 2019.
On the unfateful day of 14th February, 40 Central Reserve Police Force personnel lost their lives after a suicide bomber rammed a car laden with explosives into the security force convoy. Jaish-e-Mohammed which operates from Pakistan had claimed responsibility for the attack.
Amit Shah also added how “Under the leadership of the Prime Minister, since 2014, India’s home ministry has solved challenges of internal security. Whether is Jammu and Kashmir, North East or the leftist terrorism, these three were sore wounds that the country faced for decades.”
Calling Abrogation of Article 370 as game changer he said “I can say with confidence that after the abrogation of 370, terrorism activities in Kashmir have reduced significantly and record tourists are reaching Kashmir every year and similarly, because of multiple agreements, the youth left various insurgency groups and have surrendered to start a normal life. There is peace in the northeast now.”
In the event Amit Shah praised the bravery of Haryana Police and acknowledged their contribution in maintaining law and order in the state.
