The demand for retaliatory action following the terror attack in Pulwama grew today as Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Bihar to inaugurate some central projects.
As NDA ally Nitish Kumar called for appropriate response, ally Ram Vilas Paswan said India should take “revenge” for “every drop of blood shed in Pulwama”. The Prime Minister said he shared the nation’s outrage.
“To the people who have gathered here, I would like to say the fire that is raging in your bosoms is in my heart too,” he said.
More than 40 personnel of the Central Reserve Police Force died on Thursday as a suicide bomber of the Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e Mohammed rammed a car, filled with explosives, into a 78-vehicle convoy.
The resulting explosion had ripped apart one bus and hit another, spreading metal debris and human remains over a 100-metre radius on the national highway.
There have been repeated demands for appropriate action from the shocked nation.
