Senior BJP leader Yogi Adityanath has asserted that the time to liberate Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) has arrived and that it will soon  become a part of India.

He also warned Pakistan that if it dares to go to war with India, its existence would be in danger.

The BJP MP from Gorakhpur also supported Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent statements on Balochistan and said that India should take a firm stand on the atrocities being  committed by Pakistan against the Baloch people.

Addressing a function in Rasra area of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath blasted Congress leader Digvijay Singh for referring ‘Jammu and Kashmir’ as ‘India-occupied Kashmir’.

“Digvijay Singh’s reaction reflects the values of the Congress party,” Yogi Adityanath said.

Holding the Congress responsible for Kashmir problem, he said if Sardar Patel would have got the responsibility in place of Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru, the issue would have not arisen.

On Mumbai attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed's appeal to Pakistan Army Chief Gen Raheel Sharif, to send troops to Kashmir to "obey" the pending order of M A Jinnah, Yogi said the neighbouring country has suffered four crushing defeats.

Addressing a rally held under the banner of 'Defence Council of Pakistan' in Karachi on Sunday, Saeed had claimed, "Kashmiris had announced before the partition that they wanted to remain with Pakistan. But after the partition, India forcibly sent Army to Jammu and Kashmir.

"On this, Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah ordered his commander-in-chief to respond by sending troops but he refused (to obey his orders). Now, I ask Gen Raheel Sharif to send troops in Jammu and Kashmir as Quaid-e-Azam's order is pending," Saeed had said.
