be an integral part of India.
Government monitors all developments taking place in the territories of India including in territories that are under illegal and forcible occupation of Pakistan. We have consistently called upon Pakistan to immediately vacate all areas under its illegal and
forcible occupation, and to put an end to the human rights violations and desist from continued attempts to bring material change in these territories.
