Congress on Thursday said government’s lack of a policy towards Pakistan is the reason for continued shelling on borders and Kashmiri youths joining militant ranks.

Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad also accused the Central government of “deteriorating” the situation on the frontiers.

“This is a matter of grave concern that according to the army chief, police officers here and officials of other agencies, the recruitment (of youth into militant ranks) is increasing. This is a (matter of) concern not only to Kashmir but to the whole country,” Azad told reporters here.

He said the biggest reason for this is “the borders are witnessing much more shelling…than during the last 67 years” even after the NDA government’s assurance of peace.

“The main reason for this is there is no policy of the government towards Pakistan. Pakistan has always been attempting to keep the flames of the fire going.”

“But the Central government should have tried to improve the situation. Rather, it has deteriorated the situation further,” he said.
