New Delhi - Reacting sharply, India on Thursday termed the activities undertaken in Pakistan by its leaders and “unsavoury elements” as “futile quest for territorial aggrandisement” to mark so-called ‘Kashmir Solidarity Day’ and said it was high time it should focus on its problems.
“We are aware that there are multiplicity of activities that are being undertaken in Pakistan by their leaders and unsavoury elements who are wanted elsewhere. Pakistan’s self-destructive and futile quest for territorial aggrandisement in Jammu and Kashmir is well known,” spokesperson in the Indian External Affairs Ministry Syed Akbaruddin said, reported Press Trust of India (PTI).
He was asked about India’s position on rallies and speeches by various parties and groups in Pakistan on Thursday.
“It is high time for Pakistan to start paying attention to all the problems that afflict them rather than covet what is not theirs and never will be,” he said, asserting that Jammu and Kashmir was and will always remain part of India.
