In the aftermath of the Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama terror attack that killed 40 of CRPF Bravehearts, the Centre has called an all-party meeting in Delhi on Saturday.

The meeting, chaired by Home Minister Rajnath Singh, is scheduled to take place at 11 AM in the Parliament Library. In the meeting, the Opposition leaders will be briefed about the actions India will be taking to deal with the situations arising out of the Pulwama terror attack.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley announced about the all-party meet after the meeting of Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) led by PM Modi, in Delhi on Friday.

Giving a befitting reply to Pakistan, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, on Friday, announced India's withdrawal of Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status to Pakistan, which was given to the neighbouring country by New Delhi in 1996, a year after the formation of the World Trade Organisation (WTO). 

Meanwhile, India has stepped up diplomatic efforts to mount pressure on Pakistan to take action against terrorism perpetrating in their country and disrupting the peace and harmony of India.

PM Narendra Modi on Friday said that the Centre gave the security forces full freedom to take action in the wake of the terror attack on the CRPF officers in Pulwama which took place on February 14.

"The bravery of our soldiers and their victory has been seen by the country. There is no one in the country who can question the bravery and ability of our forces. The forces have been given the freedom to decided time, place, strategy, to take appropriate action", PM Modi said.

40 CRPF personnel lost their lives on Thursday when a Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorist rammed a vehicle carrying over 100-kg explosives into their bus on Srinagar-Jammu national highway at around 3.15 pm at Ladhu Modi Lethpora. The convoy consisted of 78 buses in which around 2,500 CRPF personnel were travelling from Jammu to Srinagar.
