No Parliament tributes for dead soldiers dismays Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi: Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said, it was for the first time that Parliament did not pay respects to "martyred" soldiers as no obituary reference was made in the Lok Sabha for the army men who were killed in a terror attack near Jammu city on Tuesday.

"Today, probably for the first time, we did not pay respect to the soldiers who were martyred. So, our party with (other) opposition parties walked out of (the Lok Sabha)," Gandhi said.

He was speaking to the media after the house was adjourned following ruckus over the demand for tributes to the army men killed in the attack at an army base in Nagrota town, 15 km from Jammu.

The attack left seven army men, including two officers, dead.
