New Delhi: 

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, his counterpart in West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee, and Union Minister VK Singh were among the politicians who decided not to celebrate Holi today as a mark of respect to the CRPF soldiers who were killed in the Pulwama terror attack.

But Mr Kejriwal did tweet Holi wishes. 

Ms Banerjee said, “We will not celebrate Holi, but the people will find colourful ways to celebrate the festival.” She added, “We do not want to politicise the incident (Pulwama terror attack). But the jawans died despite the government having intelligence inputs about a possible terror strike.”

She also conveyed her wishes to the people on Holi.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said that he will not celebrate Holi this year due to the terror attack in Pulwama. Mr Singh tweeted, ” Happy Holi to everyone. May this festival of colours bring happiness in your lives and strengthen the bond of peace & harmony in our society.”
