India lost its sons while some were looking for political gain: PM Modi slams opposition over Pulwama attack

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday paid tributes to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel on his 145th birth anniversary at the Statue of Unity in Gujarat’s Kevadia.

Attacking the Opposition for criticising the Centre after the Pulwama attack, Prime Minister Modi urged that people should not do politics in the interest of the nation. “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,” PM Modi said.

Watch what PM Modi said:

“The acceptance in the neighbouring country about the Pulwama attack has exposed the people who questioned the sacrifice of the Pulwama martyrs. I endured those allegations but I had a deep wound on my heart for my brave soldiers who had laid down their lives. I would urge such political parties that, in the interest of the security of the country, for the morale of our security forces, please do not do such politics,” the PM said.

Prime Minister said that the country is establishing new dimensions of unity as Jammu and Kashmir has moved on a new path of development. “Today, Kashmir has moved on a new path of development…Whether it is the restoration of peace in the Northeast, or the steps being taken for development there, today the country is establishing new dimensions of unity,”.

Prime Minister Narendra witnessed the ‘Rashtriya Ekta Diwas’ parade on the birth anniversary of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel in Kevadia, Gujarat.

Parade in its tableau included National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) vehicles–Medical First Respondent (MFR), Flood Water Rescue (FWR) vehicle, Border Security Force’s (BSF) Mine Protected Vehicle (MPV) and Central Reserve Police Force’s (CRPF) Critical Response Vehicle.

The Prime Minister also administered the Rashtriya Ekta Pledge here.

Earlier today, the Prime Minister paid tribute to Sardar Patel at the Statue of Unity in Kevadia, Gujarat.

PM Modi is on a two-day visit to Gujarat, the first time since the COVID-19 outbreak and the subsequent lockdown in March, to mark Rashtriya Ekta Diwas, celebrating the birth anniversary of Sardar Patel.

Earlier today the Prime Minister tweeted, “A humble tribute to Iron Man Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, the pioneer of national unity and integrity, on his birth anniversary. Tributes to the great Sardar Patel on his Jayanti.”

Sardar Patel, who is credited with uniting all 562 princely states of the pre-independent country to build the Republic of India, passed away on December 15, 1950.
