Union minister Jitendra Singh today said the biggest achievement during the 100 days of the Modi government’s second term is the scrapping of the special status of Jammu and Kashmir and “our next agenda” is making Pakistan-occupied Kashmir an integral part of India.
“It is not only my or my party’s commitment but a resolve of the unanimous resolution passed by Parliament in 1994 by the then Congress government, headed by P V Narsimha Rao. This is an accepted position,” Mr Singh said on issue of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.
Replying to a question on the vicious campaign launched by Pakistan on abrogation of Article 370, the Union minister in the PMO said the world view is aligned with India.
“Some of those countries, which were not agreeing to India’s viewpoint, now follow our view point,” he said, adding the common man in Kashmir is “rejoicing” about the potential benefits.
However, he suggested, a handful of beneficiaries “of this mayhem, which was carried on for all these years, are unhappy.”
