Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir assembly on Tuesday witnessed uproar over the issue of ongoing ceasefire violations on the Line of Control (LoC).
Opposition parties National Conference (NC) and the Congress tried to corner the state government over the ongoing ceasefire violations.
One of the opposition leaders told the media “People are suffering badly. People are running from borders. The government is not responding to our questions.”
The opposition leaders also accused the government of not providing relief to Gujjars who lost their livestock and their houses were destroyed due to firing on the border.
The Opposition staged a walkout from the Jammu and Kashmir assembly, due to the ongoing tension on the border between India and Pakistan to protest ruling government’s “failure” to protect the lives of border inhabitants in the ceasefire violations.
ANI Reports revealed, a total of 10 persons, including two Border Security Force (BSF) personnel and two Army jawans, were killed and over 40 others injured in the heavy firing and shelling by Pakistan on the International Border and the Line of Control in the Valley since January 17.
According to the data with the Indian Ministry of Defence, ceasefire violations by Pakistan along the Line of Control (LoC) in January this year are already up to 134 and it is likely to record the most violations of the ceasefire on the LoC since 2003.
Meanwhile, calm prevailed along the Line of Control and the International Border on Tuesday with no fresh ceasefire violations reported since Monday.
