2 years of Pulwama attack: Ministers, cricketers and netizens pay tribute to CRPF soldiers

Home minister Amit Shah joined the other Union ministers including Rajnath Singh in paying tribute to soldiers of central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) on the second anniversary of the Pulawama attack.

February 14, 2021 marks two years of the Pulwama terror attack when 40 valiant Indian soldiers were killed after a suicide bomber rammed an IED-laden vehicle into the security convoy carrying them.

“I bow down to the brave martyrs who lost their lives in the gruesome Pulwama attack on this day in 2019. India will never forget their exceptional courage and supreme sacrifice,” Amit Shah said on Twitter.

“I pay homage to those brave @crpfindia personnel who sacrificed their lives in 2019 Pulwama terror attack. India will never forget their service to the nation and their supreme sacrifice. We continue to stand with their families, who had to suffer due to this attack,” tweeted Rajnath Singh.

 

CRPF also paid tribute to soldiers of CRPF on the second anniversary of the Pulawama attack. The handle tweeted: “Did not Forgive, will not Forget: Salute to our brothers who made the supreme sacrifice for the nation in #PulwamaAttack . Indebted, we stand with the families of our valiant Bravehearts.”

JP Nadda and Dr Jitendra Singh also tweeted in Hindi and paid tribute to Pulwama soldiers.

 

 

Environment minister Prakash Javadekar said the country will “forever be indebted to the bravery, courage and supreme sacrifice” of the soldiers.

Cricketers including Virender Sehwag and Suresh Rainia paid tribute to the CRPF personnel who lost their lives in the Pulwama terror attack in 2019.

“On the 2nd anniversary of the dastardly Pulwama terror attack on our soldiers, I join the nation in paying homage to their valour & supreme sacrifice. They will continue to inspire generations to come,” civil aviation minister Hardeep Puri said on Twitter.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday paid tribute to the 40 CRPF personnel who lost their lives in the Pulwama terror attack, in which a suicide bomber rammed an IED-laden vehicle into the convoy carrying them in 2019.

 

“Tribute to the brave soldiers, who died in the Pulwama terror attack. A tribute to their families as the country owes you,” the Congress leader tweeted (in Hindi).

A 22-year-old suicide bomber Adil Ahmad Dar rammed an explosive-laden vehicle into the bus. The convoy had 78 buses in which around 2,500 personnel were travelling from Jammu to Srinagar.

Pakistan-based terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) had claimed responsibility for the dastardly terror attack.

Remembering sacrifice of the bravehearts, netizens took to social media to pay homage to the CRPF personnel who laid their lives for the nation. #PulwamaAttack is trending on Twitter
