Narendra Modi
New Delhi, Oct 9: Its proved! The Prime Minister's non-interfering silence in the Pakistan ceasefire violation could be a point of contention for the opposition. But the PM seems to have certain other things in mind. Sources say that the Prime Minister is not likely to respond to the Congress's jibe that he should focus more on the escalating tension than on campaigns for the state elections.

While Narendra Modi is holding multiple rallies in Maharashtra and Haryana for the upcoming elections on October 15, the number of casualties in Kashmir has had a steep rise in casualties in the past few violations.

There were seven casualties since Monday night and more than 30 people have been injured in the attack on the 60 Indian army posts and villages. In retaliation, the government has warned Pakistan of ceasefire violations and said that no talks will be held with the Pakistani Commanders till the firing ends entirely.

India further believes that Pakistan's incessant firing is to distract the attention of the BSF jawans and give shape to an infiltration bid involving 700 militants. The source further added,"Pakistan is trying to "test the PM's resolve" especially after India cancelled talks with Pakistan that were scheduled in August because Islamabad insisted on consulting with Kashmiri separatists ahead of the session. They say Pakistan is also unnerved by the PM's recent talks with the Chinese President Xi Jinping and US President Barack Obama who stressed that India is of huge strategic importance to their countries."
