Abdullah should apologise for his statement on PoK: Heptullah

by www.business-standard.com
Manipur Governor Najma Heptulla today asked former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah to apologise to the country for his "irresponsible" statement that PoK belongs to Pakistan. Abdullah, who is the president of National conference, on Saturday had claimed that Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) belongs to Pakistan and "this won't change" no matter how many wars India and Pakistan fight against each other.
