Islamabad/ New Delhi: The Pakistan People's Party (PPP) will get back the "entire Kashmir from India because like other provinces, it belongs to Pakistan", PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari told party workers on Friday. Bilawal, in his 20s, was addressing the party workers in Multan region, according to a report on Saturday.
"I will take back Kashmir, all of it, and I will not leave behind a single inch of it because, like the other provinces, it belongs to Pakistan," the report quoted the scion of the Bhutto family as saying. Former Pakistani Prime Ministers Yousaf Raza Gilani and Raja Pervaiz Asharaf were also present at the event. Bilawal has announced plans to contest the next general elections in 2018. His mother, former slain premier Benazir Bhutto, was twice elected as the Prime Minister while his maternal grandfather Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, who founded the PPP in 1967, also served as prime minister in 1970s. Bilawal's father Asif Ali Zardari was Pakistan's President from 2008 to 2013.
India on Saturday termed as "far from reality" the comment of PPP leader Bilawal Bhutto Zardari that his party will get back entire Kashmir from it and asserted the integrity and unity of the country was "non-negotiable". "We are in the process of looking forward and looking forward does not mean that our borders will be changed. We made it very clear that as far as we are concerned, the integrity and unity of India is non-negotiable," Spokesperson in the External Affairs Ministry Syed Akbaruddin said. He said the comment was "far from reality which takes us back into the past century".
BJP leader Subramanian Swamy said India is capable of destroying Pakistan but does not want a war. He termed Bilawal’s statement as “immature.”
