JAMMU Deputy Chief Minister, Nirmal Singh today said that the people affected by border shelling have been shifted to safer shelters where they are being provided every facility.
State Government is fully committed to provide food, shelter, medical facilities to the victims and the arrangements for the same are being monitored and reviewed by the Ministers, he told media on the sideline of function organized to mark celebration of Jammu Kashmirs accession to India on this day of October 26.
