What is the reason for protests in PoK?

India on Friday said the protests being seen in several parts of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) are the ‘natural outcome’ of Pakistan’s continued policy of systematic looting of resources from the area under ‘forcible and illegal occupation’ of Islamabad. ‘ Is. It also said that the entire Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh ‘were, are, and will always remain an integral part of India’. Pakistan is facing a serious economic crisis and violent protests have started in PoK over the rising prices of food, fuel and other essential commodities. Foreign Ministry spokesperson Randhir Jaiswal said that we believe this is a natural consequence of Pakistan’s continued policy of systematic plunder of resources from these areas which are under its forcible and illegal occupation. He said such exploitative policies deprive local people of their rights over their own resources and their benefits.
