Jammu: Criticising Nawaz Sharif for raising the Kashmir issue in the UN, Shiv Sena's Jammu and Kashmir unit on Saturday held anti-Pakistan protests here and called the Centre to shutdown the office of the Pakistan High Commissioner in New Delhi.

"The Pakistan High Commissioner in India should be sent back and his office in New Delhi be shut till the time Pakistan mends its way," Ashok Gupta, Jammu and Kashmir state chief of Shiv Sena said.

Condemning the statement of Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif at the the UN General Assembly where he had advocated for a "plebiscite" in Jammu and Kashmir, the workers of Dogra Front and Shiv Sena held protest demonstrations against Pakistan in the city.

"Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's address at the UNGA stating that the core issue of Jammu and Kashmir has to be resolved and pushed for a plebiscite in the state is uncalled for," Gupta said.

He said, "Pakistan Prime Minister's speech had the imprints of Pakistani military hawks as the Prime Minister and his government were under siege in Islamabad."

Gupta said that by racking up the issue in UN, Sharif has tried to interfere in the internal affairs of India, thus deviating from the "Simla Agreement".
