Pak Punjab Assembly passes resolution against India's LoC 'violation'


Lahore, Aug 13: The Assembly of Pakistan's Punjab province on Monday passed a resolution against India's alleged violation of the Line of Control and asked the federal government to raise the issue at international forums.

The resolution, tabled by provincial Law Minister Rana Sanaullah, condemned what it described as "Indian aggression" at the Line of Control (LoC).


The resolution expressed concern and sadness at the killing of Pakistani soldiers and citizens and demanded the federal government raise the matter at international forums.

The House adopted the resolution unanimously.

The PML-N government in Punjab, the country's most populous province, is led by Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, the brother of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. Sanaullah is a senior leader of the PML-N.

Sources in Pakistan said on Monday that additional forces have been deployed on their side of the LoC.

According to sources, the additional forces were being deployed close to Sialkot and Kasur. Sources also suggested that ammunition reserves were also being augmented in Lahore in the wake of incidents of firing in the past couple of days.

However, sources in the Indian Ministry of Defence (MoD) said that there was no specific information on fresh deployment along the LoC.
