"Continued firing on the border in Jammu is cause of pain and worry. Sad that while our country took the lead in starting peace initiatives with cessation of operations during Ramzan, Pakistan has shown no respect whatsoever for this holy month," she said in a series of tweets.
The chief minister said Pakistan will have to reciprocate the peace initiatives taken by the Centre by announcing cessation of operations during the fasting month.
"Pakistan will have to reciprocate and contribute to efforts for lasting peace. Everyone must realise that violence is a zero sum game. My deepest condolences to families of victims," she added.
