Jaitley assures befitting reply to ceasefire violations

New Delhi: Defence Minister Arun Jaitley Tuesday said the army has been giving befitting replies to ceasefire violations by Pakistan.

"Indian Army has given befitting reply to Pakistan's repeated attempts of ceasefire violations along the LoC. India will keep retaliating to such violations," Jaitley told the Rajya Sabha Tuesday.

"India won't and will never bow down," he said.

A soldier was killed in ceasefire violation by Pakistan in the Akhnoor sector of Jammu and Kashmir Tuesday.

Jaitley informed the house that 199 cases of ceasefire violations took place during the UPA-II regime.

Replying to supplementaries during question hour, the defence minister also said the government is ready to provide compensation to the people in villages located near the LoC for damage caused to their houses in firing across the boarder.

"Government will also provide financial assistance to the farmers, who are unable to make use of their land for agriculture following cross border firing," Jaitley added.

Leader of Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad said: "During past two months period of Modi government, Pakistan has violated ceasefire 25 times."
