Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley after the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) meeting said, “Ministry of External Affairs will initiate all possible diplomatic steps which are to be taken to ensure the complete isolation from the international community of Pakistan of which incontrovertible is available of having a direct hand in this act.”

“The ‘most favoured nation’ status which was granted to Pakistan, stands withdrawn. People who are responsible and have supported this act of terrorism will have to pay a heavy price for it,” he added. Home Minister Rajnath Singh said, “The attack was carried out by Pakistan-backed Jaish-e-Mohammed. A strong reply will be given and I assure the people of the country this. The country pays tribute to the brave jawans who were martyred.” Describing the terror assault as an attack on India’s soul, Congress president Rahul Gandhi said his party as well as the entire opposition was fully supportive of the government and the security forces.

Those responsible will pay very heavy price: PM Modi

Pakistan cannot weaken India by orchestrating attacks and those responsible will pay a “very heavy price”, Prime Minister Narendra Modi warned on Friday as echoes from the Pulwama terror strike rang across the country with families awaiting the bodies of their loved ones in coffins wrapped in the tricolour.

Security forces will be given a free hand to deal with terrorists, the Prime Minister said, a day after 44 CRPF soldiers were killed when a suicide bomber rammed a vehicle laden with explosives into their bus in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district.

“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,” Modi said at a function to flag off the Vande Bharat Express, India’s fastest train from Delhi to Varanasi.
