‘Pak Has Been Isolated Over Kashmir Issue’


New Delhi: Pakistan has been isolated in the world over the issue of Kashmir, Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan on Friday said claiming that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s foreign policy was now fetching results.

“The world is now convinced that Pakistan is a terrorist country. The foreign policy adopted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is fetching results for India,” Paswan claimed while talking to PTI on the sidelines of an event in South Goa.

The Minister for Food and Public Distribution arrived here to address the 17th Regulators and Policymakers Retreat organised by Independent Power Producers Association of India.

He said the Centre is very serious about the Kashmir issue.

“People of the country have full faith in the central government and also in the Prime Minister,” he said.

He said the PM has adopted the right foreign policy by visiting various nations due to which India’s relations with other countries across the world over have improved drastically.

“The Prime Minister’s foreign policy is the best (foreign policy) after Independence. The world is with India and it can be credited to the Prime Minister,” he said.

“Pakistan has been now isolated over the issue of Kashmir. There is absolutely no two-way thinking on the issue of Kashmir on the side of India. Kashmir is an integral part of India,” Paswan said.

The Union minister said there is anger in the country after the Uri terror attack.

“The government is working on a strategy to counter such attacks. The issue of terrorism is tedious. Terrorists are making innocent children as their shield in Kashmir,” he said.

He said the people in Kashmir want normalcy as they want to move on with their lives.

“I was part of the delegation that went to Kashmir and what we saw was that it was absolute peace there. People want peace,” the Lok Janashakti Party (LJP) leader said.

“While on one side our mission is to eliminate terrorism, on the other hand, we are trying to establish peace in Kashmir,” he said.

Paswan said the Prime Minister has toed the right line by talking about Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and Balochistan.

“First time, the reference was made to Balochistan by the Prime Minister from the Red Fort,” he said.
