The central government will resolve the issue of war refugees in Jammu-Kashmir in a time bound and phased manner, BJP President Amit Shah today said.

Striking an emotional chord with the people living in the border helmets, Shah said the party and the country understands the pain of the people who have to suffer due to Pakistani firing and assured them of all assistance.
"We feel the pain of border people affected from Pakistani firing. I assure you that the people of the country and BJP are with you. I bow my head before you for your patriotism and remaining firm in your border hamlets despite Pak firing," he said.
Shah said Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has directed the India troops to give a befitting reply to firing by Pakistan. "We will not tolerate it," he added.
"We know your problems and issues and we have an emotional attachment with the refugees of J&K," Shah added.
