Ashwani Kumar Chrungoo, senior BJP & KP leader and Incharge, Deptt of Political Affairs and Feedback, J&K-BJP on Saturday said that India's reply at United Nations General Assembly is the befitting response to Pakistan's rant and deserves appreciation for making it clear that matters relating to Jammu and Kashmir are issues internal to India.
Chrungoo said that India’s strong-worded response to Pakistan came after India exercised it's Right of Reply' once all the country speeches in the high-level debate of UNGA’s 75th session were concluded on Friday.
Mijito Vinito, the first secretary at India's UN mission to the United Nations, addressed the United Nations General Assembly at UN Headquarters.
“Vinito, who had walked out of the hall during Pakistan PM Imran Khan’s pre-recorded address at UNGA where Khan raised the Kashmir issue, later said firmly that the address by Imran Khan was full of lies, misinformation and warmongering,” said Chrungoo in his statement on the issue Saturday at Jammu.
Chrungoo said that Mijito deserves kudos for saying with a firmness that “the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir is an integral and inalienable part of India. “The rules and legislation brought in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir are strictly internal affairs of India. The only dispute left in Kashmir relates to the part of Kashmir that is still under illegal occupation of Pakistan. We call upon Pakistan to vacate all those areas that it is in illegal occupation of in Jammu and Kashmir,” he added.
“The recent controversial statements issued by a number of Kashmir centric leaders speak of their desperation, double-talk and frustration. The 5th August 2019 developments have deeply impacted the psyche of these leaders who have strangely started asking for their 'subjugation by China'. Public abuse and unparliamentarily language in public discourse have also got added to their political syllabus now, though unfortunately,” he said.
Chrungoo further said that in such a situation, it is imperative for the people in the UT of Jammu and Kashmir and particularly in the Kashmir valley to choose a better ‘mainstream non-BJP’ leadership than a tired, retired & out of mind one which seems to have lost the pace with the change of times.
“There is no question of going back even in the wildest dreams so far as the constitutional and political changes in Jammu and Kashmir are concerned. These changes reflect strategic, national, political, human rights and humanitarian needs and requirements of the people in the Jammu and Kashmir Union Territory and one needs to readjust to the new realities which are to stay for good,” Chrungoo added.
