LoC peaceful, ceasefire benefits people on both sides: GoC
Keran (Kupwara): Asserting that ceasefire along the Line of Control is benefiting the people of both sides, General officer Commanding (GoC) of Srinagar-based Army’s 15 Corps Lieutenant General D P Pandey Wednesday said that situation was far better and that the tourists were visiting remotest places of Kashmir.
As per news agency KNO, Pandey stated this while addressing Keran Mela-2021 in northern district of Kupwara. The ‘Mela’ (fair) was organised by the Army at LoC on the banks of the Kishanganga river. Senior army officials were also present on the occasion.
Talking to reporters on the sidelines of the function, the GoC said that the Army will continue to organize such events. “When the LoC is peaceful it is beneficial for the people who live on the border; so LoC must remain peaceful for them,” the GoC said, adding however that “there is always a design by the enemy to violate the ceasefire to enable the militants to sneak in, but all such bids are foiled. The LoC is peaceful and I hope that it continues to remain so.”
