Minister Sushma Swaraj to make formal statement; on Jadhav, Pakistan and ‘meeting’
The government made an announcement in Lok Sabha that it would make a statement on the treatment meted out to the family of Kulbhushan Jadhav in Pakistan.
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj made the announcement on Wednesday.
During the Zero Hour, members of various political parties including the Congress, Shiv Sena, Trinamool Congress and AIADMK, strongly protested the way Jadhav’s family members were treated by Pakistan authorities.
It was then that the Minister Swaraj, who was present in the House, said a statement on the issue would be made on Thursday.
Speaking in the Parliament, Congress leader in the Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge demanded that Jadhav should be brought back while Shiv Sena’s Arvind Sawant also raised the issue and insisted that India should not keep silent in the matter.
Condemning the incident, AIADMK M Thambidurai said asking a woman to remove her ‘mangal sutra’ is an insult to the country. >
