"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.

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.
