Fourteen people, including 8 civilians and 6 security forces personnel, were killed and over 65 injured in shelling by Pakistan along the IB and the LoC in Jammu region, forcing over 45,000 people to migrate.

Led by Jammu and Kashmir Congress president Gulam Ahmed Mir, Congress workers and leaders held demonstrations in the border town of Vijaypur in Samba district.

The protesters accused the Prime Minister Narendra Modi- led BJP government of following a weak policy to deal with Pakistan.

Addressing a gathering, Mir said the situation along the borders reflected a total failure of the central and the state government.

Mir said the BJP had forgotten the slogans and promises it made to the nation, especially to the border people.

“So the Congress has taken to the streets to remind the Modi government of its promises and to know about the policy and roadmap of the BJP government to deal with Pakistan,” he added.

Mir also said the state government headed by Mehbooba Mufti had totally failed to deal with the situation in Kashmir.
