NEW DELHI, Aug 12: The routine customary exchange of sweets between the Border Security Force and Pakistan Rangers along the international border did not take place on Monday on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha, officials said.
The unilateral withdrawal of diplomatic ties by Pakistan with India, in the wake of the Modi-government's decision to revoke provisions of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir, is being seen as a reason for the non-conduct of the ceremony.
They said the Pakistani side did not respond to Border Security Forces' move to exchange sweets and greetings along the IB running through the states of Jammu, Punjab, Rajasthan and Gujarat.
"The customary event did not take place on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha on Monday," a senior official said.
The two forces that are deployed along the over 3,000 km of this border conduct the exchange of sweets drill on major festivals like Eid, Holi, Diwali and the respective national festivals of both countries.
