The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has begun to include cities under Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) in its forecasts, the head of his office said Thursday.
“The Indian Department of Meteorology (IMD) has issued weather bulletins for the entire Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh regions. We mention Gilgit-Baltistan, Muzaffarabad in the bulletin because they are part of India, “the ANI news agency quoted IMD Director General Mrutyunjoy Mohapatra as saying.
“For a long time, IMD has issued bad weather forecasts for Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Nepal etc. We mention this information in our national bulletin. Over the past two days, we have begun to mention this information in our regional bulletin, “ANI quoted Mohapatra further.
Mohapatra said they had named areas under the PoK under his daily weather bulletin since the Jammu and Kashmir branch in two union areas in August last year, PTI news agency reported.
These PoK cities have now found a place in the overall forecast of the northwest division. The IMD northwest division consists of nine subdivisions: Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Delhi-Chandigarh-Haryana, Punjab, eastern Uttar Pradesh, western Uttar Pradesh, eastern Rajasthan, and western Rajasthan.
This development is considered important because New Delhi is in the position that the PoK belongs to India.
The inclusion of Muzaffarabad and Gilgit-Baltistan in the forecast took place amid the Supreme Court of Pakistan which allowed elections in Gilgit-Baltistan this week. India reacted strongly to development.
A senior Pakistani diplomat is served by “demarche”, or a formal diplomatic representative by telephone, to file India’s loud protest against the orders of the Supreme Court of Pakistan.
Mohapatra said that IMD, as the World Meteorological Department nominated as a Regional Meteorological Center, gave warnings of bad weather to Pakistan, Afghanistan, Maldives, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Myanmar, Nepal and Bhutan which detailed estimates for the next five days.
