UP CM Yogi Adityanath was moved by the tragedy when he was asked about the Pulwama terror blast in which at least 44 CRPF paramilitary soldiers lost their lives. During an interaction with engineering students in Lucknow, Yogi Adityanath was asked about the steps being taken by the PM Narendra Modi government to fight terrorism.
One of the students in the audience section asked Yogi Adityanath at the “Yuva Ke Mann Ki Baat” programme in the city. “I know that our government befitting replied to last terrorist attacks Pakistan carried out in our country. But it looks like a chain of events- the attack, we retaliate and everything gets normal after a few days. What is your government doing to find a permanent solution?
He asserted that terrorism will be totally removed from the country under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership

“What is happening in Kashmir is like that of a lamp that glows brighter when is it being doused. Terrorism is reaching its end. The Narendra Modi government is committed to end this,” Yogi Adityanath replied.
The chief minister got a round of applause from the audience. However, in the next question, Yogi Adityanath apparently got emotional as he was seen taking out his handkerchief only to wipe his tears as he held the mic in one hand.
Yogi Adityanath also spoke about the 2 suspected Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists posing as students were arrested in UP after the search operation confirmed both were linked to Pulwama terror attack.
“We conducted an operation in Uttar Pradesh. We received a few links related to the Pulwama attack in connection with which we did a big operation in Uttar Pradesh.”
