Bhubaneswar: BJP national president Amit Shah’s scheduled Sambalpur visit today cancelled following the worst-ever terror attack in Pulwama of Jammu & Kashmir that left 45 CRPF jawans dead including two Odias.
Shah’s is scheduled to address booth level workers of four Lok Sabha constituencies — Sambalpur, Bargarh, Sundergarh and Dhenkanal . This apart, Shah’s all other political events have been cancelled today. Similarly, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’ Madhya Pradesh visit was also cancelled.
“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 tweeted.
