As heavy exchange of fire continued across the line of control, Prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee reviewed the situation along the border at a high-level meeting and briefed President KR Naryanan about the current situation.

Meanwhile, Mr Vajpayee rejected a second term for Mr Narayanan, sources said. Mr Vajpayee reminded Mr Narayanan that there was an unwritten convention against giving a second stint to President. The only exception was Rajendra Prasad.
