Congress Roasted For Map That Marks Out 'Indian Occupied Kashmir'

The big news At least 6 people killed in car and stabbing attack in London and 9 other top stories

"For Modi, the soldiers have become a shield to play politics and hide his failures", the PTI quoted him as saying.

There has been no official comment by the Congress party on the illustration. He expressed complete solidarity with the depressed people of the Held Valley and said that the sun of freedom of Kashmir will rise soon and people of Occupied Jammu and Kashmir will soon get freedom from Indian yoke.

Azad said that during the UPA's tenure, whenever Pakistani leaders visited India, Modi would say that soldiers were dying on the border but Congress leaders were serving biryani.

India has long maintained a tough stand against the China-Pakistan corridor that passes through disputed part of Gilgit and Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK).

SIALKOT-Member Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) Legislative Assembly Ch Ishaq has said that President Mamnoon Hussain has won the hearts of Kashmiri people by reiterating Pakistan's complete support to the Kashmir cause.

Shrikant Sharma, a minister in the Uttar Pradesh government and its spokesperson, alleged that releasing such a map amounted to "treason" and Congress chief Sonia Gandhi should apologize for it.

Congress leader Ajay Maken said it was a "printing error" but admitted that it was his party's responsibility to ensure that such a mistake was not allowed.

Targeting the BJP, Mr. Maken said its website had on March 28, 2014, shown a similar map.

Referring to what he described as the abysmal GDP numbers of this quarter, Mr. Singhvi said they were so poor that Finance Minister Arun Jaitley's responses to the press on Thursday were "full of utter confusion, perplexity, hypocrisy, bewilderment, and even bemusement. he said "Demonetisation can not be identified as the sole reason for low GDP growth" (while saying simultaneously) that 7%-8% is a reasonable area of growth".

The booklet is a part of an attempt of UP Congress to counter the claims by the BJP of good governance for last three years under Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

"Before raising questions, they should respond to publication of such maps", he said.
