National Panthers' Party chairman and MLA Harsh Dev Singh urged upon the union government to shed off its inhibitions and adopt a tough stand against Pakistan for its “highly disdainful, criminal and preposterous acts in persistently assaulting the National pride and honour”.
He said the persistent Pakistani misadventures on the borders in violation of ceasefire agreement (CFA) should be an eye-opener for the Indian government, which has been through and through pursuing a submissive and meek approach despite the highly pernicious onslaughts of Pakistan.
He lamented that a steep hike had been recorded in terrorist-related fatalities during 2013 with Pakistan refusing to mend its ways despite high-level meetings between the premiers of the two countries.
He said intrusions into Shala Bhatu area in Keran sector, Poonch, Samba, Hiranagar, Akhnoor among others have created an alarming situation with Thursday's acts being highly reprehensible, in which Pakistan rangers directly shelled Indian villages targeting civilian population working in fields in Pargwal, RS Pura, and other areas.
Condemning the Pakistan aggression, as an act of war, he called for appropriate and adequate response to this most reprehensible act.
He said the helmsmen in Delhi have rendered themselves as objects of contemptuous humorous disparagement by shedding crocodile tears over all Pakistani assaults and misadventures in the past without taking appropriate measures.
Reminding the Centre of recent incidents of barbaric beheading of an Indian soldier on LoC and merciless killing of Chamel Singh, he said the government should recollect how Pakistan refused to respond to India's appeals and requests.
Accusing the Centre of diplomatic failures, Singh said it owed an explanation to the nation for its submissive policies and soft approach in the face of highly offensive Pakistan and aggressive China.
Urging upon the Union government to adopt tough stand, Singh said India needs to take up the said issues at international forums, agitate them in international court of justice, take measures to declare Pakistan a rogue and terrorist nation and further mount pressure on Pakistan to refrain from such misadventures in future.
