New Delhi,dec. 6 : Despite Friday’s serial terror strikes in Kashmir, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is to go ahead with his programme to address two election rallies on Monday, PMO sources said.
Modi condemned Friday’s serial terror attacks in Kashmir, saying these are “desperate attempts” to derail the atmosphere of hope created by the increased voter turnout. The coordinated attacks were carried out in places which are going to polls on December 9.
Attacks in J&K are condemnable. They are desperate attempts to derail the atmosphere of hope and goodwill as seen by increased voter turnout Modi tweeted after the strikes.
Despite a poll boycott call by militants, Jammu and Kashmir witnessed huge voter turnout in the first two phases of assembly polls. Three more phases of polling are yet to take place.
Paying tributes to the defence personnel, the PM said “125 crore Indians bow to our brave Armymen who sacrificed their lives. These men lived and died for the nation. We won’t forget them.”
