Delhi govt cancels all official events
NEW DELHI: The Delhi government cancelled all its official programmes on Friday as a mark of respect towards the 40 CRPF personnel killed in Pulwama attack, with CM Arvind Kejriwal extending full support to the Centre and armed forces in taking whatever action they deemed fit. Terming the attack a "highly condemnable and cowardly" act, the AAP convener also paid homage to the personnel killed at a gathering at the party office on DDU Marg. "Delhi government and people of Delhi are fully with the Central government at this hour and we support whatever action the Central government and our armed forces deem fit," he said.
In one of the deadliest terror attacks in Jammu and Kashmir's three decades of militancy, a Jaish suicide bomber rammed an explosives-laden vehicle into a CRPF bus in Pulwama district, killing around 40 personnel and leaving many critically wounded on Thursday. The Delhi chief minister said the entire country is in grief and there is "tremendous anger" among the people on this "highly condemnable and cowardly" act, he said.
