'When will government wake up', Congress asks after Pakistani shelling
The Congress on Friday attacked the Modi government over the repeated ceasefire violations by Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir, which has resulted in civilian deaths.
"Ceasefire violations have gone up by 500 per cent in 44 months. Over 303 military personnel and 193 civilians have died in Jammu and Kashmir. Today again two civilians died and four (were) injured... Saheb (Prime Minister Narendra Modi), when will our government wake up?" Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala asked in a tweet.

जम्मू और कश्मीर में 303 जवान शहीद, 193 नागरिक मरे,
आज फिर 2 नागरिकों की मौत, 4 घायल।
पाकिस्तान की नापाक हरकतें पड़ रहीं हैं भारी,
षड्यंत्रकारी बरसा रहे रोज़ गोलियाँ ढ़ेर सारी,
‘साहेब’, कब जागेगी सरकार हमारी? pic.twitter.com/Bw4RJyMTqd
His remarks came after two civilians were killed in heavy shelling and firing by Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir's RS Pura sector early on Friday.
On Thursday, Surjewala came down heavily on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Government of India alleging that India's national security and strategic interests are being severely compromised by this government.
He said the PM has mastered the art of 'Electoral Rhetoric' but in 'Reality' miserably failed to secure the borders of the country.
Surjewala was speaking after the emergence of satellite images of the Chinese build-up at Doklam.
