Govt to end proxy war, says Advani: PTI
Union Home Minister L K Advani said on Thursday that the government was determined to end the proxy war waged by Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir.
"The government is determined to end the proxy war by Pakistan," he said, at the inauguration of a petrol pump dedicated to Kargil hero Squadron Leader Ajay Ahuja in New Delhi.
Referring to the recent killing of Amarnath pilgrims, he said that such incidents affected the common people and the entire country got involved in this undeclared war.
Holding Pakistan responsible for the tension between the two countries, Advani said that India had won all four wars against Pakistan.
Union Defence Minister George Fernandes said the government has stepped up the initiative to take care of the martyrs' families.
Defence and petroleum ministries have co-ordinated to come up with a scheme of allotting petrol pumps and LPG dealerships directly to families of the martyrs, he said.
Petroleum Minister Ram Naik said, "So far, 431 proposals have been received by the ministry, of which 328 have been approved."
