Press Trust of India  |  Jammu 

Expressing concern over repeated ceasefire violations by Pakistan, leader and former minister Raman Bhalla today said the time has come to silence the Pakistani guns along the and international border.

He also criticised the Centre and state over their response to ceasefire violations and said it was the responsibility of the BJP-led dispensation to find a solution.

"The time has come to act and silence the Pakistani guns as the residents of border areas, since July last year, have suffered unimaginable losses due to unprovoked Pakistani firing and shelling," he said interacting with people in Gandhi Nagar here.

He said that ceasefire violations and militant attacks in the past few months have broken all records and "this is dragging us into the 1990s as more youths, according to agencies, are joining militant ranks".

"It is government's duty and responsibility to find a solution to the repeated violations," he said.

Lauding the role of BSF in safeguarding the borders, the leader said "the force has done a good job and it has done what was required of it".
