India reacts angrily over Pakistan
Government of India firmly rejects Pakistan government’s decision, while MEA falsely claimed GB part of Indian territory.
Furthermore, it falsely claims that GB remains under illegal and forcible occupation.
Again, India claims the entire Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh, including the area of so-called Gilgit-Baltistan an integral part of India.
Prime Minister Imran Khan announced GB’s new stratus during his address at the Azadi Parade held to mark the 73rd Independence Day of Gilgit Baltistan on Sunday.
The PM also congratulated people of GB on the PTI government’s decision to give GB provincial status.
Imran Khan said the government of Pakistan made this decision, while keeping in view the UN Security Council (UNSC) resolutions.
He said he could not speak in detail about a development package because of the upcoming elections.
But he assured the people that his government would prioritize helping the poor and people from underdeveloped areas.
The PM also spoke on current political situation. He said that the fact that the opposition was criticizing the chiefs of Pakistan Army and Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) proved that he had appointed the right people to the posts.
