The preliminary investigations into the incident revealed that Pakistan-based organisation Jaish-e-mohammad was behind the attacks. Their service to the nation will always be remembered.

File – Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India arrives at the Hangzhou Exhibition Center to participate to G20 Summit, in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, China, on September 4, 2016. Yesterday, PM Modi gave his first public speech after the incident and slammed Pakistan for its refusal to take actions against those responsible.

“This is failure of the Centre to fulfill aspirations of the people”, she added.

Alleging that PM Modi was trying to “emotionally blackmail” people ahead of Assembly polls, Mayawati said advising Pakistan was a “political conspiracy” and people of UP and Punjab should be aware of it.

Responding to another question on whether the United States government has made any contact with the Pakistani or Indian government regarding the recent tensions between the two countries, Earnest said he was not aware of any such incident.

Akbar made the remarks in response to Sharif’s comments in London that the Uri attacks could be the result of the people’s “reaction” to the tense situation in Kashmir.

“In the world when reports of terrorism come, then this news also follows that the terrorists came from that (neighbouring) country, or like Osama bin Laden, have found a hideout there”.

“People of Pakistan should question their leadership on why, when both countries gained freedom together, while India exports software, Pakistan exports terrorists”, Modi said. “For our future generations, we have to cross new heights of development”, the Prime Minister said.

Prime Minster Narendra Modi on Sunday addressed the nation on his monthly show “Mann ki Baat“. PM again started his speech by saying that Uri attackers will not be spared. I pay my tribute to these martyrs. The perpetrators of these attacks will be punished for sure. “I call upon people of Pakistan to come forward, fight a war on who defeats unemployment, poverty, illiteracy first”.

PM Modi also said that he has full confidence in Indian Army and are proud of them.

Modi said a Class 11 student named Harshvardhan who was disturbed by the Uri attack had written to him saying he wanted to do something for the country.

The Uri attack was one of the most devastating terror attacks in the country in recent times. “The army displays its bravery”, Modi said. On Sunday, another soldier, an Odia BSF jawan succumbed to his injuries, increasing the death toll to 19.
