LoC attack: Lok Sabha passes anti-Pakistan resolution

Both the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha unanimously adopted identical resolutions condemning Pakistan army for indulging in the attacks and asked the government of Pakistan to abide by the ceasefire commitment of 2003 along the international border and the LoC in letter and spirit.

The Houses regretted that the Pakistan army was indulging in attacks at a time "when efforts are being made to establish a long-lasting framework of peaceful, friendly and cooperative ties so that both the countries may henceforth devote their resources and energies to the pressing task of advancing the welfare of their people."

The resolutions read out by Chairman Hamid Ansari in Rajya Sabha and Speaker Meira Kumar in Lok Sabha said, "This House rejects and deplores the resolutions passed by the National Assembly of Pakistan on August 13,2013 and the Federal Assembly of Punjab which made absolutely baseless and unfounded allegations against the Indian Army and the people of India."

Both the Houses underlined that "there should be absolutely no doubt in anyone's mind, including members of the Pakistan National Assembly that it was the Pakistan Army that was involved in unprovoked attack on an Indian Army patrol on our side of the LoC" on August 6.
