Mufti for deescalating tension along LoC
Taj’s PRO Joins PDP
Jammu, Jan 11: Stressing the need of maintaining spirit of ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC), PDP patron Mufti Muhammad Sayeed today emphasized that political leadership of India and Pakistan must step in to arrest escalating tension on the borders.
He said peace on the borders was in the interest of the people of Jammu and Kashmir because they bear the brunt of hostility between the two countries.

He said the ceasefire, which was announced on the borders by the former Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee in the year 2003, had brought positive change in the lives of the common people in Jammu and Kashmir.
“The ceasefire along the borders from Kathua to Kargil had proved to be a very important event not only for the two countries but also for the people in all the regions of Jammu and Kashmir”, he said adding leadership of India and Pakistan must act with political wisdom and not allow the hawkish rhetoric to spoil the gains of the peace process.
The PDP patron reminded that opening of Uri-Muzaffarabad road was result of the ceasefire on the LoC.
Speaking on the occasion former Deputy Chief Minister, Muzaffar Hussain Beig reaffirmed commitment of PDP to aggressively pursue the agenda of reconciliation and development in the State.
Sayed Najeeb Naqvi, who joined PDP today, remained PRO of Congress Minister Taj Mohi-ud-Din for more than 15 years.
Naqvi said that he has decided to join PDP due to the policies and programmes of the party.
