    Pakistan’s misadventures on LOAC has made the border areas people life hell;they since last six decades witnessing such incidents,several times to migrate and in a hope of peace probably lost their three generations future.When Modi ji become PM,people do hope his strong messages to Pak rulers to desist from such border misadventures will be shelved,however,from the facts it seems,Pakistan never understood the language of love and peace,indeed,her itchings could made to bleed by valiant Indian Army that provided some relief for some time.Sordidly,BJP govt led by Modiji perhaps following the previous governments policies of appeasement has boost Pak morale who without worrying about consequences involved in indiscriminate firings on our civil population frequently.Since,Modi,as PM to visit Jammu tomorrow,Pakistan’s unprovoked firings on civilians may be their message of”Ham Nahi Sudhre Gay”.
