MEA lights into ‘motivated stories’ about Kashmir in a section of foreign media

Agency News

New Delhi, Sep 12: The Ministry of External Affairs on Thursday lashed out at a section of foreign media for what it said "motivated stories" about J&K and insisted that the perceived controlled kind of situation in one police station area has been shown as that of the entire Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh regions.

"There are also a lot of motivated stories especially in the international press....," MEA spokesman Raveesh Kumar told reporters here and insisted that often the tension or the perceived controlled kind of situation in one police station area has been shown as the happenings in entire Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh regions.

"At least 92 per cent of the area of Jammu & Kashmir have no restriction. Earlier, restrictions had been imposed by local administration in some parts to maintain law and order. Some day time restrictions remain in only 11 of the total 199 Police Stations," he said.

"You all must have seen a report in a section of foreign press where they have tried to project the situation under one police station in Srinagar as what is going on in J&K and Ladakh," the MEA spokesman said. (UNI)
