Amid tension, India responds to China’s ‘Ladakh infra development’ comment

India on Thursday asserted that the union territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh "have been, are, and would" remain an integral part of the country, insisting that China has no locus standi to comment on its internal matters.

"Our position on this has always been clear and consistent.

The union territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh have been, are, and would remain an integral part of India.

China has no locus standi to comment on India's internal matters," Srivastava said at a media briefing.

India calls Pakistan 'safe havens for terror entities' ahead of FATF test

As global anti-terror watchdog FATF reviews Pakistan's performance in curbing terror-financing, India on Thursday said the neighbouring country continues to provide safe havens to terror entities as well as UN-designated terrorists. Spokesperson in the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) Anurag Srivastava said Pakistan has addressed only 21 out of 27 "action items" prescribed by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) to contain terror financing. The FATF began its three-day virtual plenary meeting on Wednesday in which it is reviewing Pakistan's performance in implementation of the action plan recommended by it to choke channels of funding to the terror groups operating from the country. "As is well known, Pakistan continues to provide safe havens to terrorist entities and individuals and has also not yet taken any action against several terrorist entities and individuals including those proscribed by the UNSC such as Masood Azhar, Dawood Ibrahim, Zakir-ur-Rahman Lakhvi etc," Srivastava added.

Water sports in Kashmir gets big boost with modernised centre

The administration of Jammu and Kashmir is upgrading the infrastructure of water sports in Srinagar with an aim to promote adventure sports in the Valley. With some of world's famous water bodies including Dal Lake and Nigeen Lake, Kashmir has tremendous potential to boost water sports in the region. However, lack of facilities including weak infrastructure was not boding well for energetic players. But with the upgradation of the water sports center located in Dal Lake, aspiring players can now now hone their skills with world class equipments including boats and jetties. More importantly, the long pending demand of a high tech boat shed has also been met. Water sports players are happy with the new changes and said they are now looking to compete with national and international players.
