Following is the preliminary draft of English rendering of PM’s statement on terror attack in Pulwama based on the extracts from his speech on this occasion.
“At the outset, my tributes to the soldiers martyred in the terror attack in Pulwama. They have laid down their lives for the country. My heartfelt condolences to the families who have lost their near and dear ones in this hour of grief.
I know there is deep anger, your blood boils looking at what has happened. At this moment, there are expectations and the feelings of a strong response which is quite natural.
We have given full freedom to the security forces. We have full faith in the bravery and valour of our security forces. I am hopeful that the patriotic fervour will ensure that people will provide correct information to our agencies so that we can intensify our efforts to crush terror.
I want to tell the terror outfits and those aiding and abetting them that they have made a big mistake.They will have to pay a very heavy price for their actions.
Let me assure the nation that those behind this attack, the perpetrators of this attack will be punished.
I also understand the sentiments of those who are criticising us. They have full rights. However, it is my request to all my friends that it is a very sensitive and emotional moment and the nation stands united in its fight against terror. We should speak in one voice and rise above politics.The message which should go across the world is that we are one nation, one voice in our fight against terror, the fight which we have to win.
Our neighbour which is already isolated by the global community is in a state of illusion, if it thinks that it can demoralize India with its dastardly acts and nefarious designs. Let me state categorically that it should stop day dreaming to destabilize India. This neighbour of ours which is in a state of economic despair
must know that nay such attempt is destined to fail and will be foiled.
Times and again it has been proved that those which follow such routes are destroyed themselves. The course which we have adopted is one of progress and development.
130 crore Indian will give a befitting reply to any such act or attack. Many big countries have strongly condemned this terror attack, have stood behind India and expressed support for India. I am thankful to all these nations and appeal to them to join hands in the global fight against terrorism. The menace of terror can be contained only when the nations are united in the fight against terrorism.
Friends, after Pulwama terror attack, we are in a state of grief as well as deep anger. However, let me tell you, nation will counter such attacks strongly.India will not be intimidated. Our brave soldiers have laid down their lives. The martyrs live for two dreams- for Suraksha - safety of the nation and for sammridhi- prosperity of the nation. I salute our martyrs, seek their blessings and assure you that we will leave no stone unturned to fulfil their dreams for which they have laid down their lives for the nation. We will strive hard to gather momentum on the road to development as a mark of our respect to the martyrs.
My compliments to every engineer, worker who has been behind the concept, design and operationalization of Vande Bharat Express. Made in Chennai, this train is going to have its maiden run between New Delhi and Varanasi today. This is the strength of Ek Bharat, Shreshtha Bharat and that of Vande Bharat,
मैं पुलवामा के आतंकी हमले में शहीद जवानों को श्रद्धांजलि अर्पित करता हूं।— PMO India (@PMOIndia) February 15, 2019
उन्होंने देश की सेवा करते हुए अपने प्राण न्योछावर किए हैं। दुःख की इस घड़ी में मेरी संवेदनाएं, उनके परिवारों के साथ हैं: PM
इस हमले की वजह से देश में जितना आक्रोश है, लोगों का खून खौल रहा है, ये मैं समझ रहा हूं।— PMO India (@PMOIndia) February 15, 2019
इस समय जो देश की अपेक्षाएं हैं, कुछ कर गुजरने की भावनाएं हैं, वो स्वाभाविक है।
हमारे सुरक्षा बलों को पूर्ण स्वतंत्रता दी हुई है।
हमें अपने सैनिकों के शौर्य पर पूरा भरोसा है: PM
मुझे पूरा भरोसा है कि देशभक्ति के रंग में रंगे लोग सही जानकारियां भी हमारी एजेंसियों तक पहुंचाएंगे, ताकि आतंक को कुचलने में हमारी लड़ाई और तेज हो सके: PM— PMO India (@PMOIndia) February 15, 2019
मैं आतंकी संगठनों को और उनके सरपरस्तों को कहना चाहता हूं कि वो बहुत बड़ी गलती कर गए हैं।— PMO India (@PMOIndia) February 15, 2019
मैं देश को भरोसा देता हूं कि हमले के पीछे जो ताकते हैं, इस हमले के जो भी गुनहगार हैं, उन्हें उनके किए की सज़ा अवश्य मिलेगी: PM
जो हमारी आलोचना कर रहे हैं, उनकी भावनाओं को भी मैं समझ रहा हूं। उनका पूरा अधिकार है।— PMO India (@PMOIndia) February 15, 2019
लेकिन मेरा सभी साथियों से अनुरोध है कि, ये बहुत ही संवेदनशील और भावुक समय है, इसलिए राजनीतिक छींटाकशी से दूर रहें। इस हमले का देश एकजुट होकर मुकाबला कर रहा है, ये स्वर विश्व में जाना चाहिए: PM
पूरे विश्व में अलग-थलग पड़ चुका हमारा पड़ोसी देश अगर ये समझता है कि जिस तरह के कृत्य वो कर रहा है, जिस तरह की साजिशें रच रहा है, उससे भारत में अस्थिरता पैदा करने में सफल हो जाएगा, तो वो बहुत बड़ी भूल कर रहा है: PM— PMO India (@PMOIndia) February 15, 2019
इस समय बड़ी आर्थिक बदहाली के दौर से गुजर रहे हमारे पड़ोसी देश को ये भी लगता है कि वो ऐसी तबाही मचाकर, भारत को बदहाल कर सकता है। उसके ये मंसूबे भी कभी पूरे नहीं होंगे।— PMO India (@PMOIndia) February 15, 2019
130 करोड़ हिंदुस्तानी ऐसी हर साजिश, ऐसे हर हमले का मुंहतोड़ जवाब देंगे: PM
साथियों, पुलवामा हमले के बाद, अभी मन: स्थिति और माहौल दुःख और साथ ही साथ आक्रोश का है।— PMO India (@PMOIndia) February 15, 2019
ऐसे हमलों का देश डटकर मुकाबला करेगा, रुकने वाला नहीं है: PM
