New Delhi, July 24 (ANI): Asserting that Kashmir is an integral part of India, the Congress party on Sunday came out in strong support of External Affairs minister Sushma Swaraj's statement, criticising Pakistan Prime Minister's recent remark on Kashmir and said this dream would never come true. Swaraj on Saturday slammed Pakistan's unabashed embrace and encouragement to terrorism in Kashmir and said that its delusional dream that 'Kashmir will one day become Pakistan' would never be realised. Leader of opposition in Lok Sabha, Mallikarjun Kharge said that Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who said that Kashmir would one day become a part of Pakistan, would never be come true as Kashmir is an integral part of India. "Everybody should get together and condemn this statement of Nawaz Sharif and will never let his dream come true. And maybe, they are saying all this to make the terrorist of their country happy, but this is a dream and this dream will always remain a dream," Kharge "Kashmir is a part of our country and will always be a permanent part of this country and is eternal," Kharge added. Hitting back at Pakistan Prime Minister, Swaraj on Saturday said the whole of India would like to tell the Nawaz Sharif that this dream will not be realised even at the end of eternity. "The whole of Jammu and Kashmir belongs to India. You will never be able to make this heaven on earth a haven for terrorists," she said, while lambasting Pakistani leaders for giving very irresponsible statements about Jammu and Kashmir. Stating that Pakistan's Prime Minister says that his good wishes are with the people of Kashmir, the EAM said, "Sadly, it's not Pakistan's good wishes or moral or diplomatic support, but its weapons and terrorism that it has exported to Jammu and Kashmir."
