Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla has bluntly said that India is completely against terrorism and expansionism. The country clearly believes that the democratic system should be strong in all countries. On the changed situation in Afghanistan, the Lok Sabha Speaker said that the situation is worrying, but it does not pose any threat to India.
Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla, who came to Leh to participate in the parliamentary outreach program related to Panchayati Raj, gave this statement at a place from where direct messages to China, Pakistan and Afghanistan go. Parliamentary business activities are in full swing in Leh at present and several parliamentary committees are reaching here for their meetings.
Birla said that the impact of Taliban in Afghanistan is not going to affect our country. He said that our soldiers are capable of dealing with the challenges of terrorism, expansionism and cross-border terrorism. Our borders are completely secure. Not taking the name of China, Birla said that due to expansionist policies of some countries, disputes on the borders arise.
The process of delimitation in Jammu and Kashmir will end at the earliest.
On the assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir, Birla said that elections can be held here soon. He said that the process of delimitation in Jammu and Kashmir will be over at the earliest and after that elections will be held here. He said that after the changed situation, the wind of development has started in this area. Birla is scheduled to train panchayat representatives in Leh on August 27 and Srinagar on August 31. The main objective of this program is to empower the Panchayat as much as possible. Birla says that if the Panchayati system is strong, then the backbone of democracy will be strong.
