Former Indian Army Chief hints at war against Pakistan?
*New Delhi: *
Pakistani Kashmir is a part of India and New Delhi will get control over it, Union Minister General VK Singh (retired) said in Delhi on Wednesday. Former Army Chief hinted at by military force occupation of the Azad Kashmir.
Minister of State for Road Transport and Highways also dubbed the criticism of the government by the opposition over the EU delegation's visit to Kashmir as insignificant.
"What is the need to capture it. PoK is ours. We will get hold on it...," Mr Singh replied to a query on the sidelines of an event by industry body Assocham.
Mr Singh's remarks comes a week after Union Minister Jitendra Singh said days are not far off when it will be possible to unfurl the tricolour in PoK.
On Army Chief Gen Bipin Rawat's recent remarks that Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir is a "terrorist-controlled" part of the neighbouring country, he said the same has been said in Parliament too.
Gen Bipin Rawat on Friday had described Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir as a "terrorist-controlled" part of the neighbouring country and sought to link it with Islamabad''s strident criticism of India's decision to scrap Jammu and Kashmir's special status.
On the Opposition's criticism of the government over the EU delegation visiting Kashmir, Mr Singh said; "Apart from opposing, the Opposition doesn't do anything. They can speak on anything. Let them pass remarks."
