Lok Sabha Elections 2024: ‘PoK will be merged with India if BJP gets 400 seats’: Himanta Sarma

'PoK will be merged with India if BJP gets 400 seats': Himanta Sarma

Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma talked about a fresh to-do list if the NDA gets 400 seats in the ongoing general elections. Countering opposition demands for a constitutional amendment, Mr Sarma said today that the focus would be on making Pakistan-occupied Kashmir a part of India. His list also has two construction projects – temples at Krishna Janambhoomi in Mathura and in Varanasi’s Gyanvapi. “You think Hindus would be satisfied with Ram Janmabhoomi alone,” he asked.

As for Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, Mr Sarma, speaking at a rally in Jharkhand’s Ramgarh, said it was a natural evolution of the party’s plans.

“When we crossed 300 (seats), we scrapped Article 370, built the Ayodhya temple. When we cross 400, we will ensure that Pakistan-occupied Kashmir merges with India,” he said.

“The real game will start after crossing 400. For the last few days, slogans of freedom have been raised in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. Crossing 400 means return of PoK to India,” he added.

“Agitation is happening every day in PoK and people are protesting against Pakistan and holding the Indian flag,” he added.

Sarma said during the Congress rule, no discussion was held in Parliament on Pakistan Occupied Kashmir.

“When the Congress government was in power, we were told that one Kashmir is in India and the other in Pakistan. It was never discussed in our parliament that Pakistan has ‘occupied Kashmir’, it is actually ours,” he added .

The issue of protests in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir was also highlighted by External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar.

People in PoK must compare their situation with those living in Jammu and Kashmir in view of the progress there, he said yesterday. The BJP has attributed the high voter turnout in the Srinagar Lok Sabha seat election to the abrogation of Article 370.

From 14 percent of opinion polls in 2019, the figure rose this time to 38 percent, the highest since 1989.
