The Minister of State for Home said PoK has been under Islamabad's illegal occupation because of the "mistakes" of previous governments.
"Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir is a part of India and due to the mistakes of the previous governments it has remained with Pakistan. If we try to get PoK back, no one can stop us because it is our right," he said on the sidelines of a function in Delhi.
The comments came a day after National Conference chief Farooq Abdullah said Pakistan would not allow India to take back that part of Jammu and Kashmir which was under its occupation.
