New Delhi : ” The Nation is expressing its deep anguish against the cowardly terrorist attack on our security forces in Pulwama. We are fully geared to fight a decisive battle against the scourge of terrorism against our country and our government is committed to take this fight to its logical conclusion,” said Union Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, Rural Development, Panchayati Raj and Mines, Narendra Singh Tomar while addressing the media here on February 16, 2019, after the conclusion of the meeting of floor leaders of various political parties in Parliament on Pulwama terror attack. The meeting was chaired by Union Minister for Home Affairs Rajnath Singh.

Condemning the dastardly attack, Tomar said, “the supreme sacrifice of our brave soldiers shall not go in vain. The Government has given a free hand to the security forces to deal with the forces promoting terrorism against India.” The Government of India (GOI), from the very beginning, has followed a policy of zero tolerance against terrorism and this cowardly terrorist attack displays a sense of frustration in the terrorists due to this policy only, the Minister added.

The Government is standing strong with the bereaved family members of these Jawans and will not leave any stone unturned to help them. The Union Government has already requested all the State Governments to provide requisite aid to these families, the Minister informed.

Acknowledging the support of all political parties in the fight against terrorism, Tomar said that the Nation stands united with the peace-loving people of Kashmir in condemning the forces encouraging cross border terrorism against India. The Minister said that there are elements in the State of Jammu Kashmir who are determined to unsettle the peace and are hand-in-glove with the terrorist forces. Such people are enemies to the Kashmiri Youth and they do not want that peace sustains in the State.  Tomar, quoting the Home Minister, said that the Government is committed to eliminate the evil of terrorism from Jammu & Kashmir and return peace and tranquility to the State.
Tomar also said that during the meeting all the political parties have, in one voice, condemned the terror attack and observed a two minute silence for the martyred soldiers.  A resolution condemning this act of terrorism was also adopted during the meeting, the Minister informed, according to a PIB release.
