Allow cross LoC movement: Bhim urges India, Pak
GK NEWS NETWORK
Jammu, July 24: National Panthers Party chief Prof Bhim Singh has urged both India and Pakistan to ensure free movement of people across the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir as was being done prior to 1957.
Singh while addressing third workshop of the members of JKNPP national council here said the party welcomes the meeting of the foreign ministers of Indian and Pakistan and hoped that the two sides will move forward to build bridges of peace.
“The NPP proposes that the two sides should allow movement of the people across LoC”, he said adding, “The passport should be the only requisite formality for any one willing to visit the other side and there should not be any need for the visa as was being done prior to 1957”.
He said that this move was almost formalized during Shimla agreement but it failed to materialize due to ousting of the then Pakistan President.
He also urged all the political parties to support his party’s demand of reorganization of the state so as to ensure justice, social, political and economic upliftment of all the three regions of the state.
