HYDERABAD — AIMIM President and Lok Sabha MP from Hyderabad Asaduddin Owaisi blasted Pakistan for interfering in India’s internal affairs and said Islamabad should stop poking its nose in Kashmir affairs.
Addressing a party rally in Hyderabad Owaisi further said that Kashmir is and will always remain an integral part of India. “Even Kashmiris and Kashmir youth are an integral part,” he stressed.
Owaisi said Pakistan should stop meddling in Kashmir affairs.
Owaisi also accused the BJP-led Central Government of not doing anything for Kashmiri Pandits.
The Hyderabad MP said whether it was the Congress or the BJP at the Centre, they have “no policy, no vision” to bring back normalcy in the Kashmir Valley.
“I feel that there has to be a consistent policy on Kashmir which unfortunately is lacking,” he said.
The All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) leader was replying to a question at the Telangana Jagruthi International Youth Leadership Conference which began here Saturday.
Owaisi said instead of having a policy for the region, the government was now aiming to have less lethal weapons which shows where its priority lies.
He said IAS officer Shah Faesal, who recently resigned from the civil services, should chalk out his own independent political journey.
Faesal, who has been in the limelight since becoming the first Kashmiri to top the exam in 2009, resigned on January 9, protesting the “unabated” killings in Kashmir and the “marginalization” of Indian Muslims.
