Modi effect! After nine days of gun battle, peace prevails on India-Pakistan border

India-pakistan border.
Jammu, Oct 11:It seems that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's diplomacy has started showing its affect on Pakistan as after nine days of continuous firing, guns finally fell silent on the border between India and Pakistan.

Tension at the 192-km long International Border in Jammu region seemed to have calmed down with no ceasefire violation by Pakistani troops since Thursday night.

"There have been no ceasefire violation from across the border along IB in Jammu region since Thursday night", Divisional Commissioner, Jammu division, Shant Manu said.

"It was peaceful overnight after long spell of shelling and firing", he said.

However, "people who have fled their homes in border areas will remain in shelter camps for the next few days until we are sure about prospects of peace along the border," he said.

"We are watching the situation along the IB carefully", a senior BSF officer said, adding a round-the-clock vigil is being maintained.

"There is a pattern to Indo-Pak border firing. It continues for four to six days and then the intensity either goes down or guns fall completely silent for a couple of days. It then picks up again. It happens because forces get tired of firing every day. We are keeping our fingers crossed. For all you know, Pakistan forces are just recuperating," said a senior BSF officer.

"It was too early to call it beginning of peace on the border," BSF DG DK Pathak said.

Credit for the same must also be given to the Centre's 'tit for tat' policy towards Pakistan's continuous aggression.
