allpartymeeting-30535640_6NEW DELHI : Their anger also found resonance at the all-party meeting called by the NDA government to brief the opposition on the terror attack in Pulwama. The meeting ended with a resolution condemning the terror strike. “We stand united in solidarity with our security forces in fighting terrorism, defending India’s unity and integrity,” the resolution said. Condemning Pakistan for “actively encouraging” terrorism from across the border, the parties said India has displayed firmness and resilience in tackling it.
After the meeting, Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said he told home minister Rajnath Singh to ask the Prime Minister to meet the presidents of all political parties to chart the future course of action as the “entire nation is angry right now”. He said the opposition will stand with the government to end terror in the country. Saturday’s meeting was the first-of-its-kind called under Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the wake of a terror attack.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who held public meeting in Maharashtra on Saturday, said that the jawans will decide what punishment has to be dealt to the perpetrators of the Pulwama attack. He also launched a scathing attack at Pakistan without naming it and said that it had become a synonym for terrorism. The announcement on the all-party meeting was made after the Cabinet Committee on Security meeting held on Friday, after which India withdrew the Most Favoured Nation status given to Pakistan to further restrict trade between the two neighbours. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also warned Pakistan that it will have to pay a heavy price for the attack and said that forces have been given the full freedom to retaliate.
Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad had claimed responsibility for the attack on Thursday, soon after local youth Adil Ahmad Dar had blown up his explosive laden car near the CRPF convoy on the Srinagar-Jammu highway. India has slammed Pakistan for stating that it had no role in the Pulwama attack, saying Islamabad could not claim that it was unaware of the presence of terror groups on its soil as the links of such outfits to the country were there for everyone to see.
“JeM has claimed responsibility for the attack. The organisation and its leadership are located in Pakistan. The Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and other terror groups had welcomed the news of the attack and those groups were also based in Pakistan,” the ministry of external affairs said in a statement.
Putting up a strong bipartisan front, political parties in the opposition and the government said India was determined to fight terrorism in a resolution adopted at the end of an all-party meeting this morning to discuss the Pulwama terror attack that left 40 security personnel dead.

Underscoring their solidarity with security forces for defending the country’s unity and integrity, the parties, including the BJP and the Congress, passed a resolution condemning the terror attack and support being given to it from across the border. The resolution did not name Pakistan but asserted that India has been facing the menace of the cross-border terrorism which of late, it added, is being actively encouraged by forces from the neighboring country.
“India has displayed both firmness and resilience in dealing with these challenges. The entire nation speaks in one voice to express its determination to fight these challenges. Today, we stand united in solidarity with our security forces in fighting terrorism and in defending the unity and integrity of India,” it said.
