Ahead of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj’s speech at the United Nations General Assembly session, Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy tweeted that he expects her to make a good speech and wrote a three-pointer measure that India should take in order to isolate Pakistan.
Swamy tweeted, that in order isolate Pakistan for the Uri attacks, Pakistan embassy staff upto the Third Secretary should be expelled, their Most Favoured Nation identity be taken away and suspension of te Indus Treaty should take place. According to sources, India would raise the recent terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri region, in which 18 Indian Army soldiers lost their lives and highlight Pakistan’s alleged involvement.
Let us start against Pakistan with graded retaliation:1.Expel Pak Emb staff upto Third Secy; 2.Scrap MFN; 3. Suspend Indus River Treaty.

Sources further added that Swaraj will strongly emphasise on Pakistan’s involvement in her speech. Launching a scathing attack on Pakistan, Prime Minister Modi had yesterday said that India would never forget the Uri terror attack and would make all efforts to isolate Islamabad globally.
Exercising the Right of Reply to Sharif’s tirade about the Kashmir, First Secretary in the Permanent Mission of India to the UN Eenam Gambhir had said that the worst violation of human rights is terrorism. She said Pakistan is home to the “Ivy League of Terrorism” and a terrorist state that commits war crimes by using terrorism as an instrument of state policy.
Meanwhile, PM Modi is set to review the Indus Water Treaty today. The Treaty, was a water sharing agreement signed between Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and then President of Pakistan, Ayub Khan in September 1960 in Karachi.
The agreement covers water distribution and sharing rights of six rivers- Beas, Ravi, Sutlej, Indus, Chenab and Jhelum. It was brokered by the World Bank. It was signed because the source of the aforementioned rivers came from India. In the wake of Uri attack, it has been suggested that India should scrap the water distribution pact in order to mount pressure on Pakistan.
