Senior National Conference leader and MLA Kangan, Mian Altaf Ahmed, has accused the central and state governments of being indifferent to miseries of border residents.

The former minister blamed the governments in Delhi and J&K for the deteriorating situation on the line of control and the international border.

"The regimes in Delhi as well as in J&K are responsible for the escalating situation along the borders, the border residents are the worst sufferers of this situation," Mian Altaf Ahmed told the Greater Kashmir.

Altaf said the situation is worst in the last few years. 

"We have seen it in Rajouri, Poonch where many civilians lost their lives and huge population was affected, and now it is international border," he said.

He expressed concern and grief over the civilian deaths in the intensified cross border firing along international border in Samba, R S Pura, Arnia and other areas of Jammu division, adding that the central as well as the state governments have failed to take any effective measures to de-escalate tension along the borders and prevent the loss of innocent lives.

"During last four years of this government the situation along borders has been worst and a number of human lives were lost," he said.

Altaf said that contrary to the claims of the centre and state governments that necessary steps like construction of underground bunkers, shifting of affected people to safer places by providing them land would be taken, the governments have done nothing practically.

Altaf demanded immediate relief to the affected people and urged the government to act immediately and move them to safer areas to prevent human loss.

The NC leader urged the GoI as well as the State Government to take effective and urgent measures to de-escalate the situation and bring an end to the miseries of the hapless people of the border areas in Jammu and Kashmir.

Mian Altaf Ahmed urged the leadership of India and Pakistan to end hostilities to save further loss of innocent lives on borders.

"In many cases, civilian houses are located near the LoC and IB. They do not have any safe bunkers to take refuge at the time of shelling, children and women usually become victims of firing," Altaf said.
