BJP dubs Bangkok blast ‘heartbreaking’

New Delhi: Expressing sorrow over the loss of innocent lives in the Bangkok blast, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday dubbed the untoward incident as ‘heartbreaking’.

“We pray to god for granting peace to those who have lost their lives and for granting health to those who are injured. I am sure the truth would be known very soon. But whenever such kind of things happen in the world, we are very pained,” he added.
