Pakistan says India inflexible on Siachen

Islamabad, Oct 03 (ANI): Pakistan's Foreign Ministry spokesperson Tasnim Aslam said India had never responded positively on proposals regarding the demilitarization of the Siachen Glacier, where Pakistani and Indian troops have fought at altitudes of over 20,000 feet in temperatures of minus 60 degrees Celsius for 28 years. Aslam said a proposal to demilitarize Siachen and declare it as a Peace Park had cropped up during bilateral discussions in the past, but Indian policy towards resolution of this issue always remained inflexible. She said the proposal had been made with the aim of finding a peaceful solution to the conflict region in order to help the regeneration of ecosystems affected by the conflict. Aslam said, sooner or later, Pakistan and India will have to resume the composite dialogues for the sake of sustainable peace in the region. Oct 3, 2014

Decline in insurgency paves way for development in rural Tripura

Tripura, Oct 03 (ANI): Tarun Das, a rubber tapper, has been coming to Abhicharan Village regularly to work in a rubber garden and earn his livelihood. This wouldn't have been possible some years back when people were not able to come to the village over fears of being abducted by militants. The decline of militancy has changed the face of the village and has significantly impacted the lives of people like Tarun. Situated under the Mohanpur sub-division of West Tripura, Abhicharan Village is inhabited mostly by tribals, and was once a bedrock of militancy. However, with peace returning to the area, rapid development is taking place. Under the Pradhan Mantri Gramin Sadak Yojana, bridges and roads have been constructed, and the village is now well connected with other parts of the state. Oct 3, 2014
