Srinagar – Expressing serious concern over the growing skirmishes at LoC, CPI (M)state secretary M Y Tarigami has urged the leadership of India and Pakistan to intervene in the larger interests of fragile peace process between the two countries. The CPI (M) leader called for demilitarization on both sides of LoC to stop such hostilities and allow free movement of people and trade on both sides in a phased manner.
Referring to the latest incident of ceasefire violation by Pakistani troops who reportedly opened fire at seven Indian posts from across the LoC in Krishna Ghati sector of Mendhar tehsil of Poonch district, Tarigami has warned that further vitiation of the atmosphere along the borders would derail the hard established peace process between India and Pakistan.
The CPI (M) leader appealed the top leaderships of the two countries not to let the atmosphere be vitiated any more as it is bound to derail the peace process already suffering from many hiccups. While expressing solidarity with the bereaved families of three people who lost their lives in a ceasefire violation by Pakistan troops in Uri sector, Tarigami said that such violations can exacerbate the ongoing impasse over Jammu and Kashmir and add to further tensions along the sensitive and fragile LoC.
