The opposition on Saturday cornered the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the Legislative Assembly for failing to protect the lives of border residents of Jammu and Kashmir.

A day after five persons, including an army man and a BSF soldier, were killed on the International Border and Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Pir Panjal region, the entire opposition staged protests in the House against the ruling BJP for “failing” to protect the lives of civilians and soldiers.

Shouting slogans, “BJP Hai Hai, RSS Hai Hai”, the opposition questioned the BJP’s policy on Pakistan.

“Where is 56-inch chest?  You (BJP) used to say that we will behead ten enemy soldiers against the beheading of our one soldier,” the opposition shouted. “What are you doing here? Go and fight on borders.”

Later, the entire opposition staged walkout from the House.
