Pak should mend its ways: BJP after cross-border tunnel found
Expressing concern over discovery of a cross-border tunnel along the international border in R S Pura sector of Jammu district, BJP on Saturday said Pakistan should “mend its ways and stop support to terrorism”.
“There is serious concern over the repeated attempts of Pakistan to foment trouble in India especially Jammu and Kashmir state. Pakistan should mend its ways and stop support to terrorism,” the BJP Legislature party leader Nirmal Singh said here.
Addressing public meetings at Village Mela and Dinga Amb, Singh said, “the recent unearthing of a tunnel in R S Pura is a serious matter and Ministry of External Affairs has taken up the matter with Pakistan”.
On Friday, BSF had lodged a protest with their Pakistani counterparts over the cross-border tunnel and passed on the evidence in this regard to them.
On Thursday, the BSF has detected the 30-metre-long tunnel from Pakistan to the Indian side. It was the fourth tunnel unearthed by the BSF in the region since 2012.
The former deputy chief minister said the Centre has a clear policy of nation first, party second and self last.
“Our focus has been on providing good and corruption free governance with a focus on peace, prosperity and development”, he said.
