Article 370: Pakistan Calls Joint Parliament Session


Pakistan President Arif Alvi on Monday immediately called Joint Session of Parliament in the wake of Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government’s decision to scrap Article 370.

Meanwhile, Pakistan Army Chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa called for a meeting of the Corps Commanders Conference to discuss the situation after India decided to scrap Article 370.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president and opposition leader Shehbaz Sharif and Pakistan Peoples Party Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari have been demanding an emergency meeting of the parliamentary leaders to discuss the ongoing situation.

Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi also condemned the move saying dividing Jammu and Kashmir into 2 Union Territories (UT) is evident that the BJP has lost hope.

Qureshi said that India’s decision would not solve the problem but escalate it. He added that the time would show what dangerous game has been played.

NSA Ajit Doval is scheduled to visit Kashmir valley today along with other senior security officials to review the situation on the ground.
