Union minister and Punjab BJP chief Vijay Sampla today called upon the party units of the border-lying areas to help the locals who are being shifted to safer places in the wake of the high alert sounded after the Indian Army conducted surgical strikes across the LoC.

Sampla instructed the party workers to ensure every possible help to the evacuated people so that they don’t face food and shelter related problems.

“People in border villages are leaving their homes and property for their motherland. We should respect their sacrifice and serve them in this hour of need,” he said.

State BJP secretary Vineet Joshi said an emergency meet has been called by Sampla on September 30 at Circuit House in Jalandhar.

“Current circumstances in border-lying areas will be discussed in the meet. The party chief will chair the meeting which will be attended by the core group and state functionaries,” said Joshi.
