He said that Pakistan cannot be trusted and "it is an enemy nation that will be given a response".

The alleged the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre had failed to silence Pakistan and maintain peace at the borders.

Pakistan's repeated treacherous acts during the holy month of Ramzan shows that it is taking advantage of the lack of a clear policy of the government to deal with it effectively and in an appropriate manner, state G A Mir said.

There has been a record number of ceasefire violations during the last four years and a large number of casualties among security personnel and civilians, he said.

This is a glaring example of the Modi government's failure to deal with Pakistan, the Congress said in a statement here.

"There is lot of anger among border residents and genuine concern of all country men over the unabated Pakistani shelling and heavy casualties on the Indian side.

"The NDA government is answerable to the nation for its failure to handle Pakistan and deal with it in an appropriate manner so that the bloodshed and causalities of our jawans and civilians can be stopped," Mir said.

"Pakistan's cowardly acts need to be condemned in the strongest possible words," Mir said.
