Uproar in JK assembly over ceasefire violations

Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir assembly on Tuesday witnessed uproar over the issue of ceasefire violations along Line of Control (LoC).

Opposition National Conference (NC) and the Congress party tried to corner the state government over the issue.

“People are suffering badly. People are running from borders. The government is not responding to our questions,” one of the leaders told the media.

Due to the ongoing tension on the border between India and Pakistan on January 21, the Opposition staged a walkout from the Jammu and Kashmir assembly to protest ruling government’s “failure” to protect the lives of border dwellers in the ceasefire violations.

According to reports, 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 along the International Border and Line of Control in the Valley since January 17. (ANI)
