**Bhubaneswar:** BJP national President Amit Shah, who was scheduled to visit Odisha today to attend a public meeting in Sambalpur, canceled his visit following the terror attack by Jaish-e-Mohammed in Jammu & Kashmir in which 45 CRPF jawans martyred.
“Pained beyond words by the terror attack on our soldiers in Pulwama (J&K). It is an act of cowardice. My deepest condolences are with the families of our soldiers who have lost their lives. Our forces will remain firm against such acts of terror and defeat them,” Shah wrote on Twitter.
“130 crore Indians stand in complete solidarity with the families of the courageous heroes who devoted their life in service of the nation. Generations to come will remember their valour. We pray the injured get well soon,” he added.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was scheduled to attend two political functions in Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, also cancelled his visits. PM Modi chaired a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) at 9.15 a.m. in Delhi today regarding the incident. The attack happened even as an intelligence input had warned of its the possibility 48 hours earlier. The audacious attack, the worst-ever since armed insurgency started in the state in 1989, was carried out by the JeM.
