Jammu (Jammu and Kashmir/Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh) [India], Nov. 10 (ANI): A defence expert on Thursday condemned Pakistan's constant ceasefire violations and said that it is time for India to recalibrate its policies and take tough decisions against Islamabad.

I think the time has come where we need to recalibrate our policy and take some tough decisions and ensure that Pakistan stops firing and sniping at our troops unnecessarily," Anil Gupta told ANI.

Another expert, S.R. Sinho, said Pakistan's aim is to highlight the lack of peace in the Kashmir Valley on the international platform.
