Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday visited areas hit by Pakistan shelling in Balakote and met victims of ceasefire violation.
“People here are very scared and worried,” Rahul Gandhi told reporters in Balakote.
“People here want bunkers, insurance for themselves and their animals,” the Congress VP added.
Rahul had lengthy discussion with the civilians and the victims who were affected in the cross border shelling, talking to them about their conditions.
Later in the day, he will visit the other areas that have been affected by the continuous ceasefire violations.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) earlier slammed Rahul’s J&K visit saying he was trying to ‘politicize’ the border issues.
The Congress party had earlier attacked the Centre and the PDP-BJP coalition in the state for rise in terror attacks in Jammu and Kashmir and ceasefire violations by Pakistan along the border areas, saying the government has ‘failed’ to control these incidents.
