Sand Artists Pay Tribute To CRPF Soldiers Killed In Pulwama Attack


In a unique gesture, sand artists in Andhra Pradesh’s Visakhapatnam paid tribute to the 40 CRPF jawans killed in Pulwama terror attack by using their art.

Telugu Desam Party MLA Vasupalli Ganesh Kumar and his supporters made soldiers’ graves with sand art including photos and displayed their names at Rama Krishna beach in Visakhapatnam on Saturday.

“My deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of our martyred soldiers,” said Mr Kumar while offering flowers.

The supporters of the MLA gathered around the art and raised slogans of “Vande Mataram”. They garlanded each soldier’s grave in order to pay tribute and unfurled the national flag.


The Pulwama terror attack was the deadliest in Jammu and Kashmir since the start of the century

He also said that the NDA government has failed to control terrorism. “190 members joined in terrorism in 2018. But our government failed to stop them and give the intelligence report. Indian Army soldiers’ hands are tied. Indian Government needs to give free hand to soldiers. NDA government failed to control terrorism,” he said.

Noted sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik took to Twitter and paid a tribute to the jawans by posting a picture of his sand art. “It is extremely painful to read about the attack on our brave CRPF jawans in Pulwama. My deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of our martyred soldiers,” he said.
