Pak a failed state, will cease to exist on world map: J&K Dy CM

New Delhi: Accusing Pakistan for “destabilising” Jammu and Kashmir, Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh on Thursday said the neighbouring country is a “failed state” and time would come when it will “cease to exist on the world map”.

“Time will come when Pakistan will not be on the map of world. It will have similar fate as that in the period when Bangladesh was carved out,” Singh said.

He said Pakistan has turned “jittery” following surgical strikes on terror launch pads by Indian Army in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK).

“It is now resorting to continuous ceasefire violations and pushing in militants to destabilise Jammu and Kashmir. It also engineering what is happening in Kashmir Valley,” Mr Singh said.

“Pakistan has been isolated with the proactive and strong campaign launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi across the globe. It has been isolated on the global map and has become a failed and a terrorist state,” he claimed.

He was speaking at a function to commemorate the 69th Martyrdom day of Brigadier Rajendra Singh (MVC posthumous), organised at latter’s birth place Bagoona at Rajinderpura village in Samba district.

Recalling the bravery and sacrifice of Rajendra, the Deputy Chief Minister said personalities like him inspire us to stand for the sovereignty and integration of the country.

He exhorted upon the youth to remember and emulate the bravery of such heroes.

Mr Singh said the government is committed to the welfare of soldiers and their families and informed that it was contemplating to formulate a policy for providing jobs and compensation for wards of martyred soldiers.
