PM Modi condoles at rally

India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressing a poll rally in Chittorgarh, Rajasthan on Sunday offered his sympathies to those who perished in the Easter terror bombings in Sri Lanka.

“My condolences to people who have lost loved ones who were in prayer on this holy festival,” he said, before making a case for his party to eradicate terror. “When you all go to vote and press the button next to the lotus, bear in mind that you are pressing the button to destroy terrorism. There is power in your vote.When you vote for the lotus, I will get the strength to fight against terror.”

He prefaced the poll plea by saying that hundreds of innocents had died as they prayed. “These blasts happened in churches, hotels. World over, the holy festival of Easter is being celebrated, remembering Jesus Christ’s message of peace. Innocent people were praying in churches for Easter when these terrorists killed hundreds of children, sisters, mothers and brothers. How terrible terrorism is - every day, in some place in the world, the earth bathed in blood. Today, whatever is happening in Sri Lanka… India is standing with the country. In this difficult time, India is ready to do whatever it can to help Sri Lanka,” he said. (thenewsminute)
