The Punjab unit of the BJP has called on to its cadre to extend all help to people of border villages who were evacuated following the surgical attack by the Indian Army across the Line of Control.
In an emergency meeting of the core group of the party, held at Jalandhar on Friday, union minister and president of state unit of the BJP Vijay Sampla said, “Bharatiya Janta Party leaders and activists should collaborate with the administration in whatever manner possible so that the evacuation process is carried out with ease. Also, it should be ensured that the displaced people do not face any food, shelter and medical-care related problems. It is sad that people in border villages have to leave their ancestral homes and property for their country. We should respect their sacrifice. The whole nation is with them in this hour of need. BJP is determined to serve them.”
