Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Tuesday said he would take up the issue of ceasefire violations from across the Line of Control (LoC) with Prime Minister Narendra Modi during the latter's visit to the state later in August.

"We have taken up the matter (ceasefire violations) with the Centre. Prime Minister is paying a visit to Kargil and Leh this month and if I get a chance, I will discuss the issue with him," Omar told reporters in Srinagar.

The chief minister said it was the endeavour of the state government to make sure such violations do not have much impact on the people living near the LoC.

"Ceasefire violations happen every now and then. Our endeavour is to try to make sure that it does not have much impact on the general public," he said.

Earlier, Omar inaugurated two rehabilitation complexes at Rambagh and Jahangir Chowk here, constructed for shopkeepers who were displaced due to the construction of Jahangir Chowk-Rambagh Express Corridor Flyover.

The rehabilitation complex at Rambagh has been completed at a cost of Rs 48.93 crore and has floor area of 1,05,000 square feet. It houses 152 shops and a parking space for 70 vehicles at a time.

The complex at Jahangir Chowk has been completed at a cost of Rs 50 crore and has floor area of 1,42,000 square feet. It also houses 152 shops and has parking space for 100 cars.
