Saturday, 15 February 2020 | PNS | Lucknow

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath paid tributes to the martyred CRPF jawans on the first anniversary of Pulwama terror attack on Friday.
He also directed all district magistrates and district police chiefs to go to the martyrs’ families at their residences and express condolence on behalf of the government.
If a district magistrate or district police chief is on leave, their subordinate officials visit the families of the CRPF martyrs.
In his condolence message, Yogi said it was an act of exemplary bravery of soldiers serving Mother India and making the supreme sacrifice for the country.
“I express my condolence to the families of the martyred jawans who were killed in a cowardly attack by terrorists at Pulwama in J&K on February 14 last year. Your sacrifice for the motherland is great. Jai Hind,” he said.
Among the 40 martyrs of Pulwama attack, 12 belonged to Uttar Pradesh. The UP natives who laid down their lives were Awadhesh Kumar Yadav (Chandauli), Pankaj Kumar Tripathi (Maharajganj), Amit Kumar (Shamli), Pradeep Kumar (Shamli), Vijay Kumar Maurya (Deoria), Ram Vajeel (Mainpuri), Mahesh Kumar (Prayagraj), Ramesh Yadav (Varanasi), Kaushal Kumar Rawat (Agra), Pradip Singh (Kannauj), Shyam Babu (Kanpur Dehat) and Ajit Kumar Azad (Unnao).
The UP government has already handed over an ex gratia payment of Rs 25 lakh to the families of these martyrs besides other benefits.
