Pulwama: CPI-M’s Md Salim says no need for memorial

New Delhi, Feb 14, 2020-

On the anniversary of Pulwama terror attack that left 40 CRPF personnel dead, CPI (M) leader Md. Salim on Friday launched a scathing attack on the government, saying “we must find out how the attack occurred rather than set up a memorial to remind us of the country’s “incompetence”.

Expressing that “justice for Pulwama attack needs to be done”, Salim sought to know how explosives weighing about 80 kg reached the Jammu-Srinagar national highway in Pulwama.

“We don’t need a memorial to remind us of our incompetence. The only thing that we need to know is how 80kg of RDX got past the international border and reached the ‘most militarised zone on earth’ and exploded in Pulwama,” Salim tweeted.

Salim’s remarks came following a news article which mentioned that a memorial to the 40 CRPF personnel killed in the Pulwama terror attack in February last year will be inaugurated at the Lethpora camp.

He also pasted the weblink of the article on his twitter account.

As per the information, names of all the 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel along with their pictures will be a part of the memorial that will carry the motto of the paramilitary force ‘Seva and Nishtha’ (service and loyalty).

The memorial has been set up inside a CRPF camp adjacent to the place where Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist Adeel Ahmed Dar, driving an explosive-laden car, blew himself next to a convoy of security forces killing the 40 personnel.

The convoy consisted 78 buses carrying around 2,500 security personnel on the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway when it came under attack on February 14 last year.

Almost all the conspirators behind the dastardly attack have been killed with the last one being Qari Yasir, the self-styled chief of Pakistan-based JeM terror group, who was killed last month.

The Pulwama attack turned out to be a tipping point in the already stricken India-Pakistan relations. In the aftermath of the attack, the Indian Air Force jets on February 26 last year crossed the Line of Control (LoC) and struck JeM terror camps in Balakot in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.  (Agency)
