Dr. Koul speaking to Niranjan said, “I expect that PM Modi will make the people realise, will make the United Nations realise the kind of threats India is facing from Pakistan. This is a problem that not only is affecting India but is also affecting the rest of the world.”

Pakistan has been promoting terrorism and it is due to this, and it was necessary for India, “to take the steps it took in Jammu and Kashmir in order to curtail the effect of the terrorism on the local people and also to bring progress and also to bring prosperity to the people of India,” Dr. Koul added.
