Jammu: The Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party chief, Shabir Shah, today welcomed the resumption of the bus service between India and Pakistan and urged the countries to make similar efforts to open the borders between the two parts of the State. 'The resumption of the road link is a healthy sign and this would go a long way in bringing down the tension between the two countries. But this should be carried forward and efforts made to solve the Kashmir issue,' he told The Hindu . He pleaded for free movement of the people across the Line of Control so that it provided relief to the divided families on both sides.
