In a stinging attack on those who questioned the sacrifice of our martyrs, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that Pakistan minister’s admission of Islamabad’s role in the dastardly Pulwama attack has exposed the Opposition which made ”distasteful comments and accusations” in the aftermath of the attack.
PM Modi was speaking at an occasion to mark the birth anniversary of Sardar Patel in Gujarat’s Kevadiya on Saturday.

“Today when I was watching the parade of officers, an image emerged in my mind… this image was of Pulwama attack. The country can never forget that when India was mourning the death of its sons, some people were not a part of that grief. They were looking for selfish gain in the Pulwama attack,” he observed.
“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,” PM Modi said.
Pakistani minister Fawad Chaudhry had admitted in the country’s National Assembly that Islamabad was responsible for the Pulwama attack.
