Omar’s statement came after a regional party, Jammu and Kashmir National Panther’s Party (JKNPP) took a dig at the state and Central Government for turning a blind eye to those affected in the conflict torn region.

While addressing a session of the Jammu and Kashmir state assembly, Omar Abdullah said that the allegations politically motivated.

It is worth mentioning that over 3000 people living in border hamlets have been evacuated to safe areas under a contingency plan, after Sunday’s ceasefire violation by Pakistan.

On Monday Pakistan troops again extending ceasefire violations to Samba district, heavily shelled and fired upon 40 Border Out Posts (BoPs) and 24 villages along the International Border in Jammu and Samba districts, leaving three persons injured.

However BSF troops gave a befitting reply by responding strongly with equal caliber weapons to Pakistan's firing which resulted in heavy exchange of fire, a BSF officer said.

"Pak Rangers resorted to heavy firing of small and automatic weapons and shelling of mortars bombs on 35 to 40 BoPs and civilian areas along IB in Arnia and R S Pura sub-sectors of Jammu district from 2130 hours last night" the officer said.
