JAMMU: Asking political parties to put aside their differences, BJP today called for the condemnation of Pakistan over ceasefire violations in "one voice".

"Political parties should sink their difference. We should in one voice condemn it. It needs to be condemned by all Indians in unequivocal terms, sinking their political differences, and sending a unanimous message of solidarity with the victims", BJP state unit spokesperson Arun Kumar Gupta told reporter here.

"The unprovoked firing by Pakistan on the international border (IB) and the Line of Control (LoC) claiming precious lives and property is unfortunate", he said.

"It is silly that even at this hour of crisis, some political parties are trying to score browny points by blaming the Central government. These politicians should desist from indulging in this pettiness right away", he added.

Instead, they should extend all support to the Centre.

This becomes imperative because the Central government has given a free hand to the security forces to respond to Pakistan's provocations, Gupta said.

"They are inflicting a very heavy cost on the adversary and it is not as used to happen in the past. Due to weak response from our security forces, under orders to do so by the government of the day earlier, Pakistan had felt emboldened", he said.

"Our security forces have been defending their territories and the people by responding to Pakistani firing', he said.

As a peace-loving state, India has always advocated for good neighbourly relations, he said adding that it is even now committed to friendly relations with Pakistan provided it stops firing immediately.

"The Pakistani side has been deliberately targeting civilians which is against all civilised norms. This heinous action of Pakistani forces is highly condemnable and it should desist from doing so", Gupta said.

"BJP is committed to the welfare of the border people braving the Pakistani guns. Effective steps are being taken to provide enhanced relief aid to the victims and for rehabilitation".

The Central leadership is reviewing the developing border situation and evolving an effective counter-strategy to deal with Pakistan, he added.
