India cannot be intimidated by new Pak experimentation: Dr Jitendra – Jammu and Kashmir Latest News | Tourism
“DoPT order only to abolish interviews”
JAMMU, Feb 5: Union Minister Dr Jitendra Singh today asserted that India is much more responsive both as a nation and as a state to give proper response to all the machinations of Pakistan and made it clear that “our hostile neighbour” cannot bully India into “new experimentation” by preparing toolkits to gain support across the globe.
“There is no need to worry about it (Pakistan observes Kashmir Solidarity Day). We are well equipped (to face any challenge),” Dr Jitendra Singh told reporters during a press conference at the party headquarters here today with BJP J&K UT Chairman Ravinder Raina, former minister, Priya Sethi and party spokesperson, Abhinav Sharma.
In this regard, Dr. Jitendra Singh referred to the joint parliamentary resolution passed in 1994 stating that if there is any outstanding issue between the two countries, it is that part of Jammu and Kashmir which continues to to be under illegal occupation of Pakistan for 75 years and India has pledged to recover it from the clutches of Pakistan. It’s not the only BJP or Dr Jitendra Singh to say, but there is a joint resolution by Parliament which means the whole nation is sticking to it,” he added.
He was responding to a question about the “Kashmir Solidarity Day” observed in Pakistan on February 5 since 1990 and the toolkits sent by Islamabad this year to different embassies around the world to garner support for its Kashmir policy.

“From the midnight of partition in 1947, Pakistan could not come to terms with the fact that Jammu and Kashmir is part of India and hence they are trying every trick in their book. They attempted three wars, attempted infiltration and the thousand wounds theory by provoking the insurrection,” he added.
“Now they use modern toolkits and new technologies available. But India is much more responsive and dynamic both as a nation and as a state, not to be intimidated by all these new experiments being carried out by our hostile neighbour,” said Dr Jitendra Singh.
On the National Conference (NC) rejecting the second draft proposal of the Boundaries Commission which suggested the creation of new constituencies and the reshuffling of others in Jammu and Kashmir, Dr Jitendra Singh said that anyone questioning the operation of the Boundary Commission has other motives.
“Either these parties have not sufficiently studied the parameters that guide its operation, or they have other motivations,” added the Union Minister.
“I’m not here to react to what anyone said. As far as the BJP is concerned, we have confidence in the legitimacy and integrity of the Boundary Commission which is constituted by the Chief Electoral Commission of India, which is a constitutional body. They follow certain standards and parameters that are already established. There can be no deviation,” he said.
He said: “We believe that if a body is functioning in accordance with its mandate, it is the responsibility of all workers and managers not to interfere (in its functioning).”
In response to a question regarding the withdrawal of posts returned to the PSC and SSB by the General Administrative Department (GAD) before October 31, 2019, Dr. Jitendra Singh said that there was no instruction from the DoPT to the government to the UT in this regard.

The minister said he had no knowledge of the order, however, and the UT government could respond to it.

“Under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi, the education system has actually been given new life. The education policy is a futuristic document that will place India at the top by a long leap (from the current position). Some people are not comfortable with the kind of progress the country is making under Modi and are trying to mix religion, communalism and even some hateful elements seeking to denigrate and derail the mission undertaken by Modi. They cannot consider themselves friends of India,” he added.
Asked about the strong reaction of former Chief Ministers, Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti to the incident, he said “It is better to focus on the new education policy and its implementation which will be much more beneficial”, said he added.

The world says this is India’s decade (2021-30)…by 2047, India would have assumed the frontline role,” he said, adding that “the futuristic budget presented by the government has two important aspects, one related to science and technology. and the second to exploit unexplored potential.

We have started a mission for the exploring while the space mission was also unlocked after Modi lifted taboos,” the minister said, adding that there was full focus on agriculture, farming and dairy.
“After (the outbreak of) COVID-19, Modi has become the greatest leader in the world looking to the country.
