New Delhi: Taking a tough stance against United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP), the NDA government has asked the UN body to vacate the government bungalow which it has been using as office since four decades. The role of UNMOGIP was to oversee the ceasefire line between India and Pakistan under the Karachi agreement.
It is learnt that India is not keen to go with UN mission over the Kashmir issue and has asked them to vacate the office. A senior official said that India is clear on its part that if the UN body must leave the capital and do whatever they want to do in Kashmir.
On July 10, Pakistan’s Foreign Office spokesperson Tasnim Aslam had reacted to the issue, saying that such measures would not have any impact on the legal status of the Kashmir dispute. The National Conference has also backed Modi government saying that UNMOGIP has lost its relevance and it has failed to ease the tension at borders.
