"The country cannot forget the unwanted statements given after Pulwama attack. Dirty politics laced with selfishness and arrogance was at its peak when the country was suffering from immense pain," Modi said.PM Modi further said that politics done after Pulwama attack "shows that people can cross any limit for their political gains'.

At that time, these people were only doing politics... I request them not to do such politics in the interest of the nation," PM Modi said.He further said that the need of the hour is that all countries of the world need to unite against terrorism. "No one can benefit from terrorism and violence. India has always fought against terrorism," he said.
