Kashmir India’s internal issue, no room for Pakistan to intervene: Rahul Gandhi

Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said that Kashmir is Indias internal matter and there is no scope for any other country, including Pakistan, to intervene. In a series of tweets, Rahul said that he may disagree with the government on many issues, but Kashmir will remain the countrys internal issue. I disagree with this Govt. on many issues. But, let me make this absolutely clear: Kashmir is Indias internal issue and there is no room for Pakistan or any other foreign country to interfere in it, he said. The Congress leader also said that violence in Kashmir is instigated by Pakistan. There is violence in Jammu Kashmir. There is violence because it is instigated and supported by Pakistan which is known to be the prime supporter of terrorism across the world, he added. The Congress party is facing a barrage of criticism from several quarters for its stand on Jammu and Kashmir. The grand old party had opposed the Modi governments decisions to end the border states special status and bifurcate into two Union Territories. However, several non-NDA parties seconded the Modi government in the Parliament. Rahuls remarks on Kashmir issue comes days after he and other opposition leaders were denied permission to enter Srinagar and repatriated to Delhi directly from Srinagar airport. Rahul had then said that he got a taste of the current draconian administration in Jammu and Kashmir when he and other opposition leaders were not allowed to visit Srinagar. The BJP and other political parties including a few from the opposition camp have accused the Congress and its leaders of speaking Pakistans language on Kashmir issue. Pakistan has been using Rahul and other Congress leaders remarks on Kashmir to create instability, spread fake news and discredit India.
