Jammu: There has been widespread condemnation against the unprovoked firing by the Pakistan in the Arnia forward belt of the RS Pura along the International Border (IB) in which five villagers lost their lives while 34 others were injured.
The state unit of Bhartya Janta Party (BJP) today demanded ‘stern action' against Pakistan for the unprovoked firing.
“Its high time to teach Pakistan a lesson”, BJP MP, from Jammu Jugal Kishore Sharma said.
“They resort to unprovoked firing every now and then and target our civilians. Last night they killed five villages that won't be tolerated. It's high time that Pakistan must be taught a lesson”.
He said that incidents like these have crossed the threshold of tolerance of India and it was high time that Pakistan must be paid back in the same coin. “The union Home Minister has instructed our armed forces to respond Pakistani side. He has issued instructions that our side must respond with ten bullets if they fire one,” the BJP MP said.
Sharma appealed the Jammu and Kashmir government to provide free medical care to the injured. Shiv Sena held an anti-Pak protest demonstration against the ceasefire violation as the party activists also burnt the Pakistani flag.
“We want answer from the Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not giving a befitting reply to Pakistan, as they continue to violate the ceasefire by shelling and firing upon our 25 border out posts and 19 villages along the International border in Jammu sector” state chief of Shiv Sena Ashok Gupta said.
Bahujan Samaj party also asked the prime minister to give a befitting response to Pakistan over last night's incident. “During his election campaign Narendra Modi used to make statements that the then Prime Minister was soft and was doing nothing against the frequent ceasefire violations. But now that Modi himself is the prime minister what is holding him from giving a befitting response to Pakistan now”, BSP MP (RS) Narender Kashyap said.
Professor Bhim Singh of the Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party said, “Pakistan Army and the ISI have been violating international laws and committing war crimes along the international border with India”.
“War is no solution but insisted that dangerous designs of Pakistan military should be exposed by the world. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi missed this opportunity when he spoke in the General Assembly of the UN last month”, he said.
