Rajouri, June 4: Ramesh Choudhary, a villager from Kalal Deeing area of Rajouri’s Nowshera used to plant crops in his field fearing cross-Line of Control firing and shelling.

Much of his field used to remain uncultivated as firing and shelling used to start suddenly.

This year though Choudhary is able to plant his maize crop in his entire field due to a peaceful situation along the LoC.

This is true about the life of every farmer living along the LoC in Rajouri as they are able to breathe easily this year while planting crop.

“There is complete peace along the LoC since February 26. This is the best feeling for any border resident. It is like a dream come true,” said Choudhary while planting maize crop in his field on Friday.

Romesh Kassar, Kuldeep Choudhary and other locals of the area said that there was a complete peace along the LoC since February 26 with no exchange of fire taking place between the armies of India and Pakistan since then.

They said that more than a dozen villages in the area including Deeing, Kalal, Kalsian and Seri were located along the LoC and that cross-LoC firing and shelling had taken a toll on the lives of the people here and that the ceasefire was like a dream come true for everyone.
