Senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy today said that if Pakistan goes ahead with the execution of Kulbhushan Jadhav then India should retaliate by declaring Balochistan an independent country. 

Swamy also said that India should help Balochis form a government-in-exile in New Delhi.

The BJP MP added that was no point in India talking to Pakistan about due procedure, diplomatic and consular access or appeals.

"Pakistan  has selected Jadhav saying he was trying to create problems in Balochistan. India should now declare Balochistan an independent country,” Swamy said. 

“ There are enough Balochi's in Delhi who can be asked to form a government in exile. Ultimately Pakistan will end up in four pieces," he added.

Meanwhile, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today said in the Lok Sabha that there was no evidence of any wrongdoing by Kulbhushan Jadhav.


Calling it an act of premeditated murder, Rajnath Singh also asked the  Pakistani government to take into consideration the consequences for the bilateral relationship if Islamabad goes ahead with the execution of Jadhav.

Kulbhushan Jadhav has been sentenced to death by Pakistan’s military court on charges of "involvement in espionage and sabotage activities against Pakistan".
