Sharif had gone to check flood-hit region in PoK. People in the region were hurt as they always feel neglected by Islamabad.

Meanwhile, Pakistani media too started writing about demands of PoK residents who now raised pro-freedom slogans. It has been claimed this has made Pakistani government "nervous".

Dehlavi, after his visit to PoK, reportedly told that PoK residents are fed up with growing extremism in Pakistan and want to lead a peaceful life. If they get any opportunity, they would want a referendum so that they can vote to join back India.

According to Dehlavi, PM Modi's good governance and style of handling of 2015 earthquake and 2014 flood situations impressed the PoK residents.

Modi, during his visit to flood-hit Kashmir in 2014, too had promised to offer all possible help to the people of the region citing the deteriorating situation in PoK.
