SRINAGAR: Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday called on India and Pakistan to overcome their political compulsions and start a dialogue, saying it was sad to see the increase in casualties on both sides of the Line of Control (LoC). Mufti’s remarks came after the two countries exchanged heavy gunfire at the LoC following Pakistan’s ceasefire violations on Friday. The shooting caused the loss of life on both sides.
The former Prime Minister of Jammu and Kashmir said that restoring the ceasefire agreed and implemented by former Prime Minister AB Vajpayee and former Pakistani President General Pervez Musharaf is a good place to start.

“It is sad to see the increase in victims on both sides of the LoC. If only the leaders of India and Pakistan could overcome their political compulsions and initiate dialogue. Restoring the ceasefire agreed and implemented by Vajpayee ji and Musharaf sahab is a good place to start, ”he said in a tweet.
