Will support merger of India, Pak and Bangladesh: Minister

Maharashtra Minister Nawab Malik on Sunday said that his party – the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) – will welcome the BJP’s move “if it creates one country by merging India, Pakistan and Bangladesh”.

“The way Devendra ji has said that time will come Karachi will be the part of India. We have been saying that India, Pakistan and Bangladesh should be merged.

If the Berlin wall can be demolished then why not India, Pakistan and Bangladesh can come together? If BJP wishes to merge these three countries and make a single country, we will welcome it definitely,” Malik said, when asked to comment on the former Chief Minister and BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis’s remark on Karachi.

Malik said that the NCP wants to contest the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) elections along with Shiv Sena and Congress which are part of the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government in Maharashtra.

“It is still 15 months left for the BMC election. Every party has the right to work for their party, and every party is doing so. We are also strengthening our party. We would want that those who are running the government all three parties should contest polls together,” he said.
