PoK is part of India, we will Take it: Amit Shah

Union Home Minister Amit Shah, addressing a rally in Serampore, West Bengal, asserted that Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) is part of India and pledged that India will reclaim it. Shah’s statement was made in the context of ongoing protests in PoK, which he highlighted as indicative of the region’s desire for freedom.

Shah contrasted the current situation in PoK with that in Jammu and Kashmir after the abrogation of Article 370 in 2019. He stated that peace has been restored in Kashmir since the article’s abrogation, whereas PoK now witnesses protests and slogans of “Azaadi” that were once prevalent in Jammu and Kashmir. He emphasized that the troubles that plagued Kashmir have now shifted to PoK.

Criticizing Congress leaders for their reluctance to support the reclamation of PoK, Shah specifically mentioned Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar. Shah dismissed concerns about Pakistan’s nuclear capabilities, asserting India’s determination to integrate PoK into its territory.

The Union Home Minister framed the ongoing Lok Sabha elections as a choice between the “corrupt leaders” of the INDI alliance and the “honest politician” Narendra Modi. Shah praised Modi for his unblemished record, highlighting that Modi has never faced allegations of corruption throughout his tenure as Chief Minister and Prime Minister.

In his address, Shah touched upon the issue of infiltration in West Bengal, urging the electorate to choose between supporting infiltrators and implementing the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) for refugees. He presented this decision as a critical choice for the future of Bengal.

Shah accused West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee of opposing the CAA and accused her of organizing rallies to support infiltrators. He suggested that Banerjee’s actions were driven by her desire to appease her vote bank rather than addressing the needs of the state.

The Union Home Minister’s remarks come amidst a charged political atmosphere in West Bengal, where issues of national security, immigration, and regional development are hotly debated. His statements are likely to intensify the ongoing political discourse in the state.

Overall, Shah’s rally in Serampore was marked by strong nationalist rhetoric, with a clear message of reclaiming PoK and supporting the central government’s policies under Narendra Modi’s leadership.
