Modi has buried Nehru's India: Pakistan Foreign Minister's statement
Qureshi, speaking after the Kashmir Committee's first meeting, said that India was following what he called the Doval policy.
India's decision to scrap Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir, continues to reverberate in Pakistan. On August 6, a committee was formed by Prime Minister Imran Khan, to deliberate Pakistan's response. After its meeting yesterday, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said, "Today voices are being raised there. People are saying that Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, has buried the India of Jawaharlal Nehru. People are demanding the return of the special status of Jammu and Kashmir.”
Qureshi further said, "The three people who are making policies there are Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, and India's National Security Advisor Ajit Doval." He said that India is following Doval's policy.
The Pakistani committee on 'Kashmir affairs' has a total of 7 members, including the leaders of opposition parties. Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi is its chairman. The committee also has ISI Chief General Faiz Hameed, Major General Asif Ghafur, Law Minister Naseem, Special Adviser to Prime Minister Imran Khan Firdaus Aashiq and Attorney General Anwar Mansoor Khan.
After the meeting, Qureshi said that all members presented their opinions. He said, “Keeping in mind the resolution that was passed in the joint session of Parliament, today the Kashmir Committee met. The unity that we had seen in Parliament, was seen in today's meeting also. "
The meeting was called after Pakistan's failure to push the issue in the UN Security Council. However, Pakistan claims that they are making progress in the United Nations. Qureshi said, "The UNSC reacted positively to Pakistan's appeal. The OIC has demanded the immediate removal of curfew from Kashmir."
The issue of Indian defence minister Rajnath Singh's statement also came up in the press conference after the meeting, on a change in India's no first use nuclear policy. Pakistan Army spokesman Major General Asif Ghafur said, "Pakistan is fully prepared to deal with any action by India."
