Srinagar: Endorsing the statement of the, Haseeb A Drabu that ‘Kashmir is not a political issue’, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday said that the only issue is to get ‘PoK’ back.
BJP General Secretary (organization) Ashok Koul said that there is no problem with what Drabu has said. “Drabu has said that it is not just a political problem only but a social problem as well,” Kaul told a local news gathering agency.
Drabu’s statement was widely condemned by the mainstream political parties as well as the pro-freedom camp, saying that the statement made by Drabu is baseless.
Kaul said that BJP believes that there is no problem in Jammu and Kashmir. “The only problem is to get ‘PaK’ back,” he said.
He further stated that BJP has been stating that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India. “We believe that JK is India’s integral part and the only issue there is get the PoK back,” he said.
The recent remarks of finance minister have earned a strong reaction from all political and social quarters. (KNS)
