Bihar court orders filing of FIR against Farooq Abdullah over PoK remark


Industries Minister said that the perceptible change on ground has not gone well with the politicians like Farooq Abdullah who are giving such irresponsible statements.

"No one can stop us from making PoK a part of India and we will make efforts in this direction", the minister said at a function here.

In an earlier tweet yesterday, Omar Abdullah, reacting to Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad's remarks, said he wanted to know what successive Congress governments did since 1947 to get back PoK.

"The PoK does not belong to India".

Speaking to party workers in Uri area of north Kashmir's Baramulla district, the Chief of National Conference said, "How long shall we keep saying that (PoK) is our part?" Farooq Abdullah is a Member of Parliament from Srinagar and he should resign from the post for delivering such statements.

France says Saudi coalition must boost aid efforts to Yemen
Saudi Arabia has since said that aid can go through "liberated ports" but not Houthi-controlled Hodeidah, the conduit for the vast bulk of imports into Yemen.

Abdullah has of late been advocating changing the Line of Control into an worldwide border and granting more autonomy to both Kashmir and Pakistan-occupied Kashmir as a solution to the seven-decade-old conflict. Such opportunistic, dual policy of Farooq Abdullah is in front of public. "It is our right to take it back and no one can stop us from doing it", he told ANI here.

Abdullah was referring to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

Abdullah also called for reversal of all Central laws extended to J&K after 1953.

"Bangladesh is only a so-called friend because evidently it has caused India most harm through illegal intrusion and as such going ahead it is only the smart technologies which will help us curb this menace", the minister said. "The restoration of autonomy to J&K is non-negotiable".
