He said the main brunt of the shelling is being faced by the border dwellers as escalation of tension has led to relocation of people from the forward areas that is causing enormous problems to them.

Abdullah expressed anguish over injuries to several persons in the border areas of Poonch district.

He prayed for early recovery of the injured and expressed solidarity with the people.

Abdullah also emphasised the need for providing adequate compensation to the farmers whose standing crops have been damaged due to shelling.
