The Jammu and Kashmir legislative council on Thursday adopted a resolution saying that talks between India and Pakistan should resume, urging the Centre to push for resumption of the dialogue process.

The resolution, passed unanimously, called upon the Union government to ensure cross-border firing that has caused loss of human life and property is stopped and peace brought to the region.

Amrit Malhotra, chairman of the legislative council (the upper house) moved the resolution, saying “The house unanimously resolves that the state government shall urge the Union government to take effective steps for prevention of LoC firing, which has caused huge loss of life and property in the affected areas.

“The house also resolves that the state government must urge the Union government to resume process of India-Pakistan dialogue to ensure peace and stability in the sub-continent in general and J&K in particular.”

“The House also recommends that the state should take immediate steps for relief and rehabilitation of victims of LoC firing and shall provide all required help and facilities to them in this regard,” said Malhotra, who belongs to the Congress.
