India’s goal is to take back PoK turf: Rajnath Singh



SRINAGAR: India’s goal is to reclaim areas such as Gilgit and Baltistan in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) in accordance with a resolution passed unanimously in Parliament in 1994, defence minister Rajnath Singh said Thursday, reasserting a long-held pitch that these places are “under illegal occupation of Pakistan”. He also called out Islamabad for atrocities committed in the occupied territories.

“We have just begun our journey of development in Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. We will achieve our goal when we reach Gilgit and Baltistan,” Singh said while speaking at the Shaurya Diwas or Infantry Day celebrations to commemorate the air-landing of Indian soldiers at Budgam airstrip in Srinagar on October 27, 1947.

It was the first military operation of independent India, a move that changed the course of the India-Pakistan war in 1947-48 in which Indian troops repelled invading armed tribesmen and military conscripts from taking over Kashmir Valley.




Accusing Pakistan of torturing and harassing the people of PoK, he said Islamabad “is sowing the seeds of hatred…and time is not far when people will resort to mass rebellion there”.

He said India is committed to implement the resolution passed in Parliament on February 22, 1994, about recovering Gilgit, Baltistan and other parts of Kashmir taken illegally by Pakistan. “People of PoK are being deprived of all basic rights and we are fully aware of it,” he said.

He asked Pakistan to stop shedding crocodile’s tears in the name of human ri hts, saying its double-talk is well-known because it talks about crushing terrorism and also backs terrorists in J&K.



他要求巴基斯坦不要再打着人 权的幌子,说一套做一套,巴基斯坦一面声称要打击恐怖主义,一面支持查谟克什米尔的恐 怖分子。

He said the Centre’s decision to abrogate Article 370 on August 5, 2019, ended the discrimination against the people in J&K and the region has since marched towards success, peace and prosperity.

Saying “this was just a begng”, the defence minister said the dreams of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and Acharya Shankar will be fulfilled when all refugees of 1947 get their land and homes back. “And I assure you that day will come,” Singh said.



Singh said Indian infantry has been associated with utmost courage and professionalism and the nation salutes their bravery, sacrifice and service. In 1947, the Army gave a befitting reply to enemies trying to occupy Kashmir illegally, he said. “I pray tribute to the Infantry regiments who offered supreme sacrifices by pushing the invaders back.”

This year’s Shaurya Diwas marked the 75th anniversary of the arrival of 1 Sikh Regiment at the old airfield of Srinagar in 1947 to protect Kashmir from Pakistani invaders.

After the event, defence minister Singh reviewed the security situation along the LoC and will leave for Leh on a two-day visit to Ladakh.

Though may be a political statement looking after upcoming elections, but now is the time to talk and then act about it! Thisbis the first step initiated vocally by any government of india, so the next may follow! Fingers crossed!

You're not well. Get treated so that you stop hallucinating and getting delusions of grandeur. Do you think any other free country will want to give up their sovereignity and become a slave to another country? And when was Indonesia and all the other countries in between ever part of India?? Seriously stop the lunatic thinking

We will get POK back, come what may.. Why don't the govt do something about it on the ground? Why armed force is not being used? For which day have we made this army? Just to get back Kargil or Galwan? Why do we not take the initiative? Why are we always reacting to other's moves? Even a weakling neighbour like Pak has taken initiative against us, time and time again..!




User•457• Aaa Zzz•3 hours ago

What will you do, if you take back POK?? You cannot control the IOK . You need a huge army to control them at this point.

Elections are coming and all these BS started. IOK is not stabilized and he’s talking about POK. Every other day Kashmiri pandit and Hindus are killed in IOK. What are they doing? BJP contribution is nil in freedom of India and they didn’t win won single territory since they took the office. All talks no action

Good Question use armed forces then will be a war for decade as China will interfere securing Pak corridors and cite eg as Russia is to Ukraine, India is to Pak. Russia will be neutral with new friend and West will any ways be diplomatic stating base there and will offer full protection and forces to Pak. Its very tricky and hence we are still with no solution.




Devanshu Shakya•15316• Aaa Zzz•5 hours ago

Indian armed forces are being made at par interns of weapons and technology with other super powers. Military Drone, UAV and satellite induction is at record high. When India will strike, Pak will never know what happened. Just have faith in the government.

India is sending correct vibes for reclaiming POK. We haven’t forgotten our illegally occupied land by Pakistan and same applies for Aksai Chin by China. Day will come when these territories will be liberated. Jai Hind.

As usual big talk and no action. The 56" talk like brave solders but chicken out when it comes to China. China has occupied hundreds of acres of Indian land, but feku and its followers keep talking about getting POK back. Between 2011 and 2015, 90 million people were lifted out of poverty. This useless government sent 36 million back into poverty. As long as people are too stupid and believe that religion is more important to the economy, they will be like this for ever.

First & foremost, such things are never spoken openly in media by any sensible person, but quietly actions are taken directly.

Secondly, even if we take, ensure all muslims living in these areas are also thrown back in pakistan, because they are no less than terrorists.
