92% of Jammu and Kashmir has no restrictions; Pakistan is epicentre of terrorism: MEA
9/12/2019 10:39:38 PM
RANCHI, Sept 12: The Ministry of External Affairs on Thursday gave details about the current situation in Jammu and Kashmir, which was placed under lockdown after Article 370 - that granted special status to J&K- was abrogated on August 5. MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said in a press conference today that 92% of Jammu and Kashmir had no restrictions currently. He added that that there was no shortage of medicines in the state and that 95% of healthcare professionals are on duty. "Banking facilities are operating normally. 92% of J&K has no restrictions." Kumar also addressed the issue of Pakistan raising the Kashmir matter at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) and calling for a UN probe into India's actions in Jammu and Kashmir. Kumar said the Indian delegation had responded to Islamabad's "lies and distorted statement" at the UNHRC. Pakistan has failed to get support from the international community over Kashmir, says its Interior Minister He said, "At United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), our delegation put forth our stand. We responded to Pakistan's lies & distorted statement. The global community is aware of Pakistan's role in aiding terrorist infrastructure in their country." The MEA spokesperson added, "It's quite audacious on part of Pakistan, which is the epicentre of terrorism to pretend to speak on behalf of the global community on human rights. This is very rich. They need to understand repeating a lie doesn't turn it into gospel truth, which came out during the session."
Kumar also responded to the reports of Pakistan Ministry of Foreign Affairs' claiming that Islamabad would not grant second consular access to Kulbhushan Jadhav, the Indian national who has been sentenced to death by Pakistan's military court for alleged espionage.
The MEA official said, "We will keep trying that judgment of ICJ is fully implemented. We would like to remain in touch with the Pakistani side through diplomatic channels."
Pakistan has claimed that Jadhav, a former Indian Navy officer, was spying on behalf of India. On the other hand, India has maintained that Kulbhudhan Jadhav was running a business in Iran from where he was kidnapped and illegally brought to Pakistan.
On September 2, Pakistan had allowed India's Acting High Commissioner in Islamabad Gaurav Ahluwalia to meet the detained Indian national, after granting New Delhi consular access to Jadhav for the first time in three years.
Meanwhile, over the issue of Kartarpur Corridor, Kumar said, "Pakistan did not also agree to initial number which we had proposed, that this is the number that should be allowed to visit, citing constraints on the infrastructure side. We have urged Pakistan to show some flexibility."
Pakistan has also said that it would charge $20 per person as service fee for the Kartarpur Corridor. The corridor is supposed to open for pilgrims in November this year.
