Pakistan violates ceasefire in JandK's Poonch

Ceasefire violation was initiated by Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district on January 16. Regular shelling has been a major problem for the locals.

One of the locals said, "The Central government has given the full emphasis on elections, but elections will not resolve people's problems.
