India Slams Pakistan Bid to Make Disputed Gilgit-Baltistan Area Its Provinceā€

A day after it was reported that Pakistan was planning to declare the strategic Gilgit-Baltistan region as the fifth province, India on Thursday said that the entire state of Jammu and Kashmir was an integral part of India.

India has fervently maintained that the entire state of Jammu and Kashmir, which includes areas now under Pakistan occupation, is an integral part of the Union of India.

It may be mentioned the people of the region fought their own war against Dogra Raj as the British rule came to an end in 1947. In fact, keeping these areas as a disputed territory is problematic for Pakistan so they want to make it their fifth province.
