INDIAN PARLIAMENTARY DELEGATION OPPOSES PAKISTANI PROPAGANDA DURING THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF 64TH COMMONWEALTH PARLIAMENTARY CONFERENCE IN UGANDA

Kampala, Uganda: 28 September 2019: The Pakistani Parliamentary Delegation raised the issue of Kashmir during the General Assembly under the 64th Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference being held in Kampala, Uganda, saying that Indian military forces had seized Kashmir. This Pakistani propaganda was strongly opposed by Smt. Roopa Ganguly, MP and other Members of Indian Parliamentary Delegation led by Lok Sabha Speaker Shri Om Birlaji, saying that the tradition of military rule is prevalent in Pakistan and that country had been under army rule for 33 years. It was added that Military rule was unknown in India. An Indian Parliamentary Delegation led by the Speaker, Lok Sabha, Shri Om Birla, is currently participating in the 64th Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference being held in Kampala, Uganda from 22nd to 29th September, 2019. This delegation comprises of Shri Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, MP (Lok Sabha); Smt. Roopa Ganguly, MP (Rajya Sabha); Dr. L. Hanumanthaiah, MP (Rajya Sabha), Smt. Aparajita Sarangi, MP (Lok Sabha) and Smt. Snehlata Shrivastava, Secretary General, Lok Sabha. The Presiding Officers and Secretaries of State Legislatures, who are members of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association, are also participating in the conference. Pakistan had earlier raised the same issue during the 4th South Asian Speakers’ Summit held in Male, Maldives on 1-2 September 2019 on the subject 'Achieving Sustainable Development Goals.' The Indian delegation led by Hon’ble Speaker, Lok Sabha Shri Om Birlaji, who was accompanied by Deputy Chairman Rajya Sabha Sh Harivansh, had strongly opposed the baseless allegations. As a result, the issues raised by Pakistan were rejected and left out of the Male Declaration.
