Communist Party of India (Marxist) leader Sitaram Yechury on Friday paid homage to the 40 jawans of the Central Reserves Police Force (CRPF) who lost their lives in the Pulwama terror attack. In a series of tweets, through his official Twitter handle, he also questioned the government over the inquiry report of the attack and who has been held accountable for the massive intelligence failure which claimed many lives.

Adding further, he also questioned the government over the inquiry report of the attack. "Where is the Inquiry report one year on after the terror attack? Who has been held accountable for the loss of so many lives and the massive intelligence failure? "
In his tweet, the CPI-M leader asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah on what have they done for the survivors and the family of the jawans who lost their lives in the terror attack.
Earlier in the day, CPI-M leader Mohammad Salim made a shocking statement where he said, "We don't need a memorial to remind us of our incompetence."
Salim took to Twitter to question the armed forces and wrote, "The only thing we need to know is how 80kg of RDX got past the international borders to the 'most militarized zone on earth' & exploded in Pulwama." He added that "justice" for the Pulwama attack needs to be done.
A memorial to the 40 CRPF personnel killed in the Pulwama terror attack in February last year will be inaugurated at the Lethpora camp on Friday, a top official said. The names of all the 40 personnel along with their pictures will be part of the memorial. The memorial will also display the motto of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) - 'Seva and Nishtha' (Service and Loyalty).
