APCC demands withdrawal of ceasefire in J-K

ITANAGAR, May 25: Following reports of Pakistan violating the ceasefire agreement in Jammu & Kashmir, the Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) on Friday demanded that India withdraw the ceasefire in Jammu & Kashmir.
Holding the Modi government responsible for the terror attack on the CRPF camp and BSF jawans in J&K, the APCC in a release said the announcement of ceasefire during the Ramzan month was a “blundering step taken by the government.”
It claimed that the terrorists had become more active after the ceasefire announcement.
The Centre has announced a unilateral ceasefire in Jammu and Kashmir during the holy month of Ramzan.
“The BJP should desist from playing dirty vote bank politics at the cost of civilian and military lives and property,” the party said.
The APCC also flayed the BJP government over the skyrocketing prices of petrol and petroleum products. It urged the union government to reduce the excise duty on petroleum products, and also demanded minimizing the VAT share of the state.
