Opposition stands with the government, says Tharoor

Shashi Tharoor has slammed Pakistan saying that the opposition parties in India is united with the Prime Minister on the Kashmir matter being taken to the United Nations.

Tharoor said that Pakistan has no locus standi as far as India’s internal matters are concerned. They are in the Opposition, they can criticise the government in the country over Kashmir, but outside India, they are one. They will not give even an inch to Pakistan.

His statements have come after the Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has left on a three-day visit to Geneva where he will raise the Kashmir issue at the 42nd session of the United Nations Human Rights Council.

Tharoor went on to accuse the neighbouring country of changing the internal status of Gilgit-Baltistan and Pakistan occupied Kashmir in the past.

Tharoor has added that the troubles faced by Kashmiris have been real and the opposition parties will continue to question the Centre on the methods used in Kashmir.

He said that It must be understood that the ordeals faced by the Kashmiris are real. The people were left without internet and telephones. Parents could not talk with their children. Political leaders were detained and were not allowed to attend meetings. They have raised these issues in the Parliament and will continue to raise them inside the country.
