    BJP demands apology from Abdullah on PoK remarks

    New Delhi, Nov 26: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday condemned former and chief minister Farooq Abdullah's assertion that Pakistan occupied Kashmir is not a personal property to be inherited and asked him to tender an apology for using an intemperate language related to 's sovereignty.

    “It is extremely condemnable if it is true. It needs to be clarified. How can he make such a statement? Is he not aware of the resolution of Parliament on this? Can he use such kind of intemperate language related to India's sovereignty?” asked BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli.

    The Conference leader stirred a controversy earlier on Friday by questioning India's claim on PoK and said it isn't the country's paternal property.

    “PoK is presently under Pakistan occupation. It is not the personal property of India so that it could make a claim over it like an inherited property of forefathers,” he was quoted as saying by News 18 website while addressing a function in the Chenab Valley.
