Jugal Kishore Sharma made intensive visit of these border areas which for the last several days are disturbed continuously by the Pakistani troopers. It is well known to the entire nation that unprovoked ceasefire violations have been continuously taking place by the Pakistan army who appears to be emboldened by the statements of Pakistani Envoy in Delhi who defended these violations in the direction that Pak army on the border is encouraged to disturb peace in the area. As a result on Thursday night, they targeted border security force (BSF) deployed in the R.S. Pura sector. Reportedly, Pakistani rangers who fired mortar shells caused injuries to some people on the Indian side and there are reports that 2 personnel died. Sharma took stock of the situation by personally talking to the people living on the border and families belonging to the villages of Jora, Niaoguanwal, Devigarh, Balachak, Sai Kalan, Sai Khurd.
During interactions, the people on the border areas narrated incidences of frequent ceasefire violations by the Pakistani troops which has become a consistent cause of worry. Though at the same time they sounded brave enough to retaliate such incidences with the courage and commitment to defend their country. Visit of Sharma proved quite inspiring as he appreciated the courage shown by these people under extremely difficult conditions at the risk of their lives but these brave people appeared committed to the Nation. Sharma also assured to the people that the loss incurred due to unprovoked firing from the Pakistani side will be compensated adequately at the earliest. After understanding their unique problems concerning development of border areas and other problems of essential services faced by them, Sharma committed that their woes will be conveyed to the concerned quarters at Delhi.
