BJP general secretary Ram Madhav on Wednesday hit out at Pakistan stating that the neighbouring country had no 'locus standi' to react on the Centre's decision to strip Jammu and Kashmir of its special status and to make it a Union Territory. "Pakistan has no locus standi on this issue. Indian Parliament had taken a decision about Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir and it's an internal matter," Madhav said responding to Pakistan's decision to downgrade bilateral relations with India. The BJP general secretary said if Pakistan takes the matter to the United Nations then the government will take required steps to deal with it. Earlier in the day, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan chaired a meeting of the National Security Committee and discussed the situation arising out of the "unilateral illegal" actions by the Indian government in Jammu and Kashmir and along the Line of Control (LoC).
