The Social Democratic Party held a protest against the killing of five Indian soldiers along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday, by burning the effigy of the Pakistan government in Mahilpur town on Wednesday.

Party president Jai Gopal Dhiman said it was high time that the Congress-led UPA government gave a befitting reply to Islamabad.

“India cannot afford to remain a silent spectator as Pakistan goes on with its dastardly acts of killing our soldiers at will,” said Dhiman.

“Our defence minister himself has informed the nation that the number of infiltration attempts along the LoC has doubled this year and that there have been 57 cease fire violations. What is the use of piling up arms by spending a big part of the annual budget on defence equipment if these are not to be used,” he asked, demanding army action against the neighbouring country.

Dhiman said the Prime Minister had no right to continue in his office, if he could not secure the country's borders and precious lives of the soldiers.
