He said dialogue was the only option to solve issues between the two countries as the violent approach would neither benefit India nor Pakistan and such approach always has a devastating effect on the people of Jammu and Kashmir.

Peace loving constituencies in both the countries should assert and persuade their governments to shun this path of violence and enter into a meaningful dialogue, Tarigami said.

The CPI(M) leader said that the shelling and firing on both sides of the border has only resulted in killings, destruction of property, closure of educational institutions and displacement of thousands of border dwellers.

Violence has not given any solution to the problems in the last seven decades and in future also has the potential to bring only death and destructions, he said. PTI TAS DPB DPB
