BJP slams Congress to meet UK leader on Kashmir

Agency News

New Delhi, 10 Oct, 2019: It’s "Appalling!" - is how the BJP on Thursday described on Congress party delegation meeting UK's Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.

"Congress party owes it to the people of India to explain what its leaders are telling foreign leaders about India," ran a missive from the saffron party's official Twitter handle. It further cautioned the country's principal opposition party saying - "India will give a befitting reply to Congress for these shameful shenanigans".

Mr Jeremy Corbyn had earlier tweeted: "A very productive meeting with UK representatives from the Indian Congress Party where we discussed the human rights situation in Kashmir. There must be a de-escalation and an end to the cycle of violence and fear which has plagued the region for so long."

Members of the Overseas Congress delegation in the United Kingdom on Wednesday met Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of the Opposition British Parliament. Their discussions focussed on the situation in Kashmir. Earlier, Mr Corbyn had criticised Government of India on the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir. (UNI)
