The JKPCC also accused the Centre of failing to create an atmosphere of peace in the region. "Government of India must take effective measures to put an end to the cross-border firing, which has cost so many precious lives, including that of Army, BSF personnel, so far," JKPCC president GA Mir said in a statement.

"Central government has miserably failed to create an atmosphere of peace. It has failed even to ensure safety of people, who were worst hit because of the ceasefire violations," Mir said.

BJP should stop playing politics on deteriorating situation on borders and ensure that peace prevails, so that no more precious life is lost due to cross border firing," he said.
