Qureshi writes to UN official on Kashmir issue: Pak

Islamabad: Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has once again written to the President of the UN Security Council, raising the Kashmir issue, the Foreign Office said on Tuesday.
Qureshi sent the letter ahead of the first anniversary of India’s decision to revoke the special status of Jammu and Kashmir on August 5, 2019.
Pakistan has been unsuccessfully trying to drum up international support against India for withdrawing Jammu and Kashmir’s special status and bifurcating it into two Union territories.
India has categorically told the international community that the scrapping of the Article 370 was its internal matter. It also advised Pakistan to accept the reality and stop all anti-India propaganda.
In his letter, Qureshi has raised the issue of India’s new domicile rules in Jammu and Kashmir, and also conveyed Pakistan’s concern over the alleged ceasefire violations on the Line of Control, the Foreign Office said.
He earlier sent letters to the President of the UN Security Council and the UN Secretary General on March 9 and May 21. Lieutenant Governor Girish Chandra Murmu on Wednesday sent his resignation to President Ram Nath Kovind, said a media report.
Quoting sources the report said that Murmu is set to be the next Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) taking over from Rajiv Mehrishi, who will retire this week.
While reports said Murmu has sent his resignation to Kovind, there is no confirmation whether it has been received by the President and if it has been accepted or rejected.
Murmu was appointed as the first L-G of Jammu and Kashmir last October after the formation of the new Union Territory under the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act, 2019.
Earlier on Wednesday, Army commander of Northern Command had called on Murmu and discussed the overall security management of the Union Territory.
