Block Karachi Port If Pakistan Blocks Air Space For Indian Flights- Subramanian Swamy

Indian Rajya Sabha member and veteran politician Subramanian Swamy has found an answer to Pakistani threats of blocking its airspace for Indian flights. Swamy suggested that Modi Government could block ships bound for Karachi port if Pakistan dared closing its airspace again.

Swamy’s statement comes in the backdrop of reports that Pakistan is considering to close its airspace for Indian flights. The Pakistan step came following the withdrawal of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir.

“My advice to Namo Govt: If Pak closes their airspace for our commercial and civilian aircraft, India should close Karachi port by blocking ships going through the Arabian Sea (which needs to be renamed) to Karachi port,” tweeted Swamy.

Many netizens, however, did not agree with Swamy. Other netizens suggested that the threat of Pakistan to close its airspace for Indian planes should be matched with India’s threat to revisit Indus water treaty.
