New Delhi: Union Home minister Amit Shah on Tuesday said Pakisatn-occupied-Kashmir (PoK) and Aksai chin are both parts of the India’s administered Jammu and Kashmir.
“Kashmir is an integral part of India. I want to make it absolutely clear that every single time we say Jammu and Kashmir, it includes Pak-Occupied Kashmir (including Gilgit-Baltistan) as well as Aksai Chin. Let there be no doubt over it. Entire Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of the Union of India,” Amit Shah said in the Lok Sabha.
The union minister made these remarks while replying to Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury who had sought clarification over scrapping of Article 370 from the Indian constitution.
Shah today moved resolution for abrogating some provisions of Article 370 and Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Bill in the Lok Sabha.
The resolution and the Bill have already been approved by the Rajya Sabha where they were moved on Monday.
