India today categorically rejected the resolution passed by the National Assembly of Pakistan on the subject of the delimitation exercise in Jammu and Kashmir.

In response to media queries regarding the resolution, External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said Pakistan has no locus standi to pronounce or interfere in matters that are internal to India, including the Indian territories under Pakistan’s illegal and forcible occupation.

He said the entire territory of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh has been, is and shall always remain an integral part of India.

The spokesperson said the delimitation exercise in  Jammu and Kashmir is a democratic exercise based on the principles of extensive stakeholder consultation and participation.

He called it regrettable that instead of putting their own house in order, the leadership in Pakistan continues to interfere in India’s internal affairs and engage in baseless and provocative anti-India propaganda.

India reiterated that Pakistan must immediately cease anti-India cross-border terrorism and shut down its infrastructure of terrorism.

It asked Pakistan to stop the grave and persistent human rights violations in Pakistan-occupied Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh, refrain from effecting any further material changes in the status of PoJKL and vacate the Indian territories that are under its illegal and forcible occupation.
