The death of an innocent Dalit child after he was brutally thrashed by a heartless teacher in Jalore is very sad.
I condemn this cruel act.
My condolences to the victim’s family.
The accused has been arrested under harsh sections.
He should be punished severely.

Hardeep Puri – Union Minister:
Today when we pay tribute to victims of India’s partition, I remember the ordeal faced by my parents.
My father miraculously escaped the carnage as he managed to board the last Frontier Mail from Lahore to Guru Nagri Amritsar with just the clothes he was wearing
I grew up listening to the tales of my parents’ struggle as refugees & how with everything gone, they had to build back their lives from scratch.
Partition was indeed a human tragedy in which millions like my parents suffered because of the wrong policies of the then govt.
Arvind Kejriwal – CM, Delhi:

Our unity is our greatest strength.
Together we will take the country forward and one day we will make India the number one country in the world.

He was also very passionate about India’s progress.
His passing away is saddening.

Today, on Partition Horrors Remembrance Day, I pay homage to all those who lost their lives during Partition , and applaud the resilience as well as grit of all those who suffered during that tragic period of our history.PM Narendra Modi
