Samajwadi Party moves adjournment motion over soldiers’ killing

Samajwadi Party moves adjournment motion over soldiers' killing

New Delhi: The brazen killing of five Indian soldiers by Pakistani troops along the Line of Control in the Poonch sector in Jammu and Kashmir late Monday night echoed in Parliament on the second day of its Monsoon Session on Tuesday.

Terming it as a serious matter, Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav moved an adjournment motion on the killing of Indian soldiers by Pakistani troops.

Seeking answers from the Congress government, the veteran Samajwadi Party politician said, “There is a grave danger on the border; we’ve been warning this government. Both China and Pakistan are attacking India.”

Blaming Congress and BJP for border row with China and Pakistan, Mulayam said that the two parties have given away Tibet to China and both are responsible for the border controversy.

“The PM should reply to the House; I know the Defence Minister cannot reply to all these border issues. Are our armed forces weak? Why is that we do not have information? The government should inform us how safe our borders are,” asked Mulayam Singh.

Ahead of that opposition MPs led by the BJP slammed the government for its inaction and demanded the UPA government to take up the case with the Pakistan authorities.

MPs from the Left also attacked the UPA government for not rising from its deep slumber on the issue.

SP MP Naresh Agarwal said, “Ceasefire violation by the Pakistan troops has become a routine affair. The government must do something in this regard till it is very late.”

Similarly, BJP MP Kirti Azad condemned the ceasefire violation by the Pakistani troops and stressed on the need for giving a befitting reply to the neighbouring country.

BJP MP Jaswant Singh also condemned the attack and killing of Indian soldiers.

In his reaction to the incident, J&K Chief Minister Omar Abdullah tweeted, “(I) was briefed early this morning about the news that five of our soldiers had been killed on the LoC. My heartfelt condolences to their next of kin.”

“These incidents don’t help efforts to normalise or even improve relations with Pak and call in to question the Pak Govt’s recent overtures,” he said.

Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi also used the opportunity to attack the Congress government at the centre.

“From China’s intrusions to Pakistan’s ambushes – UPA Government has been absolutely lax in securing Indian borders. When will Centre wake up?” he tweeted.

“My heartfelt condolences to the families of the brave Soldiers who laid down their lives in Poonch”, his tweet said, adding, “Death of 5 Indian Soldiers is unacceptable.”

The issue forced Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Rajiv Shukla to say that Defence Minister AK Antony will make a statement on the issue later in the day.

The pandemonium and the ruckus over the issue had earlier forced the Speaker of the Lok Sabha to adjourn the Lower House till noon. Meanwhile, amid uproar over the killing of five jawans along LoC, Telangana and other issues also led to the adjournment of Rajya Sabha till noon.
