Pathankot, Jan 4: Gurdaspur MP Vinod Khanna on Monday, Jan 4 strongly condemned the Pathankot terror attack and appealed to the people of his constituency to maintain calm and peace. "I strongly condemn the terror incident in Pathankot.
It appears to be an attempt to sabotage peace initiatives between India and Pakistan," Khanna said in a statement issued here.
He said, "I am hopeful that our security agencies will effectively contain the terror attack, which is an act of cowardice by those who are against peace between two nations."
The actor-turned-politician also offered his condolences to the bereaved families of the security personnel who died while fighting the terrorists at Pathankot Air Force base.
He appealed to the people of his constituency (Pathankot falls in Gurdaspur Parliamentary Constituency) to maintain calm and peace in the hour of crisis.
The statement was issued by his political secretary Samrendra Sharma. Sharma said, "Khanna is unwell and currently in Mumbai," adding that he might visit Pathankot in a week's time.
