BJP asks PM to assure nation on steps taken to tackle violations along LoC

An Indian Army soldier was killed when Pakistani troops opened fire on Indian forward posts in the Balakote sub-sector along the LoC in Poonch District on Tuesday.



New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday criticised the Congress-led UPA Government for its failures to combat regular ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC), and said Prime Minister Manmohan Singh must give an assurance to the nation and inform citizens about the steps taken by New Delhi.
An Indian Army soldier was killed when Pakistani troops opened fire on Indian forward posts in the Balakote sub-sector along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch District on Tuesday evening in what is stated to be the second ceasefire violation of the day and the eighth in less than a week.
"See, the situation along the border is very critical now because there are growing ceasefire violations, there are more push of infiltration, infiltrators. There is total backfire for protecting the terrorists coming in India. So it`s a mini-war like situation and therefore our soldiers are dying, they are getting injured," said BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar.

"And therefore, we have demanded the Prime Minister must come clean. He must give the statement now to assure, reassure the nation and tell what action the government of India wants to take," he added.
