In a 3-minute report, the ticker mentions the area as Azaad Kashmir multiple times. The report was about Pakistan Army chief writing to ‘Health Minister of PoK’ to ensure 50% bed reservation for Pakistan Army and keep blood stock ready.
Pakistan-occupied Kashmir is facing an unprecedented health crisis due to a high number of Covid-positive cases after the Pakistan government allegedly sent corona-positive cases from Punjab province in PoK.
Home minister Amit Shah pointed out last year on several occasions that the Modi government will take strong action to take back the occupied area of Kashmir from Pakistan.
