Jammu: Several political parties and organisations today staged anti-Pakistan protests in different parts of Jammu city after four Border Security Force (BSF) personnel were killed and three injured in cross border firing along the IB.

Led by their chairperson Harsh Dev Singh, workers of the Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party (JKNPP) demonstrated at the Exhibition Ground.

Singh stressed that Pakistan needs to be isolated at the international level to ensure that it stops its “nefarious” activities.


He also attacked the BJP-led NDA government, alleging that the GoI had failed to deal with Pakistan effectively.

“Pakistan has created terror along the border and the hinterland and the Centre is watching as a mute spectator with its focus only on winning the next year’s parliamentary elections,” the JKNPP chairperson said.

Referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s comment on a 56-inch chest , made during the 2014 general elections campaign, he reminded the government of its promise of getting the heads of 10 Pakistani soldiers for that of one Indian troop.

Protests were also staged by Jammu West Assembly Movement (JWAM) and Shiv Sena Dogra Front in New Plot and Rani Park areas of the city respectively.

The JWAM workers raised anti-Pakistan slogans and carried placards reading “Crush Pakistan, Crush Terrorism”.

The Shiv Sena Dogra Front workers called for stern action against Pakistan for the ceasefire violation. PTI
