JAMMU, APRIL 18:
The union Ministry of Home Affairs has ordered suspension of cross LoC trade at Salamabad and Chakan-da-bagh in the state pending putting into place of a stricter regulatory regime. This, the order says, is to ensure that only bonafide trade takes place for the benefit of the people of Jammu and Kashmir through this mechanism.
The order further reads that the central government had received reports that cross-LoC trade routes in Jammu and Kashmir are being misused by some Pakistan based elements.

Using Kashmir as a scapegoat to claw its way back to power won’t help BJP. It’s an excuse to worsen ties with Pak despite their peace overtures. By doing this PM Modi has dismantled a CBM Initiated by Vajpayee ji .Won’t be surprised if an attack on Pak is in the offing.”
