Maharashtra Minister Nawab Malik on Sunday said that India, Pakistan and Bangladesh should be merged.
"His party the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) will welcome the BJP's move "if it creates one country by merging India, Pakistan and Bangladesh", said the minister Nawab Malik, reports NDTV.
"The way Devendra ji has said that time will come Karachi will be the part of India. We have been saying that India, Pakistan and Bangladesh should be merged. If the Berlin wall can be demolished then why not India, Pakistan and Bangladesh can come together?" said Malik.
"If BJP wishes to merge these three countries and make a single country, we will welcome it definitely," the cabinet minister told ANI, when asked comment on the former Chief Minister and BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis's remark on Karachi.
Devendra Fadnavis on Saturday said the party believes in "akhand Bharat" and that one day Karachi, the largest city of Pakistan, will become a part of India, reports The Indian Express.
"We believe in 'akhand Bharat' (undivided India). We believe one day Karachi will become a part of India," he said.
Fadnavis made the remarks while responding to a question from the media on a Shiv Sena leader's objection to the name 'Karachi Sweets', a shop which has been in existence for 60 years in Bandra.
Earlier this week, the Sena leader asked its owner to drop 'Karachi' from its name.
