Union Minister and President of the Republican Party of India (RPI) Ramdas Athawale on Sunday extended his support to Army Cheif Mukund Naravane over his Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) remark. Athawale said PoK has housed many terror camps and proper military action is needed to uproot them. He also mentioned that the country has full confidence in the capabilities of the Indian Army.

Speaking to the media Athawale said, "PoK houses camps of terror outfits targeting India and military action is required to uproot them. As far as Pakistan-occupied Kashmir is concerned, many years ago there was a parliamentary resolution on it that entire J-K is part of India. I support Army chief Manoj Naravane's statement that the army is ready for military action in POK if ordered by the Central government. The country has absolute confidence in the capabilities of its armed forces."
