Poonch (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], Mar 19 (ANI): Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Monday appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Pakistan for stopping the continuous exchange of fire in the Line of Control (LoC), which has caused heavy losses to the civilians there.
Mufti told ANI, "This is very bad. The people of Jammu and Kashmir are the one paying the price of enmity and partition between our country and Pakistan. Our people are being killed on both the sides. It is my appeal to our Prime Minister (Modi) and Pakistan that exchange of fire should immediately stop."
"Steps should be taken to establish peace like Vajpayee Ji (Atal Bihari Vajpayee) did in 2003 and went to Pakistan when ceasefire violations took place. Prime Minister Modi also went to Pakistan (in 2015) but Pathankot (terror attack) unfortunately happened after it (his visit)."
The Pakistan army had initiated an unprovoked and indiscriminate firing in Rajouri's Sundervani sector last week.
