Responding to those expressing sympathy for Pakistan, Home Minister Amit Shah said, “I can give many answers to those who talk about Pakistan, but I will not do that today. I have come here to talk to the youth. I want to ask you that PoK is nearby, we are not satisfied with the development of Jammu and Kashmir right now, but once you compare with PoK, what did you get? What was there except poverty, darkness and smoke? Even today food is cooked by burning wood.
