SRINAGAR: Ruling Peoples Democratic Party president Mehbooba Mufti called for an immediate meeting of the DGMOs of India and Pakistan to sort out the issue of ceasefire violations amicably so that innocent lives are safeguarded.  

"I appeal for ending the bloodshed of innocent people residing near the borders. There should be an immediate meeting of the DGMOs of the two countries to sort out the issue amicably so that lives of innocent civilians, including women and children who are under virtual siege from the past several months, are safeguarded," Mehbooba, an MP from south Kashmir, said in a statement here.   

Condoling the death of three civilians in continued shelling from across the border, Mehbooba said the border skirmishes have brought untold miseries upon the people, in particular those residing near the International Border and the Line of Control (LoC).     

Terming as unfortunate the cancellation of NSA-level talks between India and Pakistan, Mehbooba said the meeting was supposed to discuss critical issues like cross-border shelling and terrorism.   

"The need of the hour is for leaders from both sides to rise to the level of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee's statesmanship to resolve all issues cordially," she said.

The PDP President conveyed her sympathies to the bereaved families and prayed for peace to the departed souls.        

She also asked the Divisional Administration to provide advance medical treatment to those who have been injured in the shelling.
