Rahul Gandhi, a leader of the Congress party, brought flowers to the Jammu and Kashmir district of Pulwama on Saturday to honour the 40 CRPF soldiers who died in 2019 when a car bomb went off.
उस मिट्टी को नमन, जहां पुलवामा हमले के वीर शहीदों का खून शामिल है।

Gandhi, who is on the last leg of the Bharat Jodo Yatra, put a bouquet of flowers at the spot where a Jaish-e-Mohammed suicide bomber blew up a CRPF bus four years ago on the Jammu-Srinagar national highway.
The Yatra, which is going to Srinagar, stopped for a short time to honour the CRPF members who were killed.
The march Gandhi led on foot began on September 7 in Kanyakumari and will end on January 30 in Srinagar.
