Congress holds candle light vigil for slain CRPF troopers


New Delhi,
Feb 17. The Delhi Congress
here on Saturday organised candle light marches in all the 280 blocks of the national capital to pay homage to the 49 CRPF troopers killed in the Pulwama terror strike and urged
the Centre to give a befitting reply to those behind the attack.

The candle
light marches, organised on directions of Delhi Congress chief Sheila Dikshit,
were attended by scores of Congress workers and others.

Urging the
government to take strict action, the Congress in a statement said, “The
Delhi Congress appeals the Centre to give a befitting reply to those
responsible for the terror attack on security forces at Pulwama.”

The party
said it stands with the security forces and the Central government in this hour
of crisis.

CRPF troopers were killed on Thursday in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district
when a Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) suicide bomber rammed his SUV packed with
explosives into a CRPF bus.
