Mumbai, Nov 23 Responding to remarks by former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Monday said Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) should be wrested back before one can talk of Karachi being part of India. According to a report, Raut was responding to remarks by BJP leader Fadnavis, who said his party believes Karachi will be a part of India one day. The remarks by Fadnavis, former Maharashtra chief minister, came days after a Shiv Sena worker asked owners of Karachi Sweets outlet in Mumbai to rename it and justified the demand by calling Pakistan a country of terrorists. Asked about the Sena worker's demand to rename Karachi Sweets shop, Fadnavis said, "We are the people who believe in akhand bharat (integrated India) and we believe Karachi too will be part of India one day," PTI reported. Raut had then said the demand for changing the name is not the official stance of Shiv Sena. Raut told reporters on Monday that the Shiv Sena will welcome Karachi becoming a part of India, adding India should wrest back PoK first. To a query on the remarks by Fadnavis, Raut said his party will welcome if Karachi becomes part of India. "But first bring PoK in India, then we will go to Karachi," PTI quoted the Sena MP as saying. Maharashtra minister and NCP leader Nawab Malik said his party will welcome if the BJP wants the merger of India.
