Naqvi flays Farooq Abdullah over PoK remark

Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

Criticising former chief minister Farooq Abdullah over his statement that Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) belongs to Pakistan, Union minister said today that the National Conference president "talks irrationally sometimes".

Abdullah said yesterday that PoK belongs to and "this won't change" no matter how many wars and fight. His statement came a few days after Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi rejected the idea of an "independent Kashmir", saying it was not based on "reality".

"Farooq Abdullah saab bujurg vyakti hain, kabhi kabhi behki baatein karate hain (Abdullah is a senior leader, but he talks irrationally sometimes)," the minority affairs minister told reporters in response to a question.
