This time we will take Pakistan occupied Kashmir (POK) back, Ravinder Raina




BJP State President Ravinder Raina had an exclusive interview with JK Channel executive Mohinderjeet Singh. Raina spoke about the party on 24th June going to be attended by Mehbooba Mufti. He also slammed Pakistan and held it responsible for the dead Indians.

Q. Sir what would you say about Pakistan?

Pakistan is the reason for bloodshed in Jammu and Kashmir over the last 40 years. It has always wanted J&K to be a graveyard. I wonder why some Leaders mourn over terrorists’ deaths rather than raising voices for our innocent people. Terrorism has killed so many people of J&K and other parts of India.

Those leaders who support Pakistan in such things are the enemies of J&K’s public.

Q. This time will article 370 be back or POK will be back?

Pakistan occupied Kashmir (POK) will be back. We will take it back. Pakistan has illegally occupied some parts if Kashmir be it Muzaffarabad, Neelam valley or the rest of the places, we are going to get them back in India.

Talking about article 370, it has become history now. People dreaming of getting it back should take rest. These are dreams that will never get fulfilled.

Q. Many leaders who often speak in favour of Pakistan have been invited to the Party while other leaders haven’t been. Your take?

Registered Political parties have been invited to the party. I’m invited, Professor Bheem Singh and some Former Deputy Chief Ministers of BJP and Congress too. BJP will be the voice of Dogras, the Hindus on that day. BJP has always stood for its public and will continue doing so.

Q. Can Jammu people expect Ravinder Raina’s reply to Mehbooba Mufti in the coming event?

I think almost everyone living in Jammu knows me now. I’m the same person who gave back answers to the leaders supporting Pakistan in assembly meetings held before.
