Terming Jammu and Kashmir as an integral part of India, the Congress on Friday said that the internationalisation of the Kashmir issue at the United Nations was a major “diplomatic and strategic failure” for the Indian government.
The Congress said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government should break their silence and immediately demand the cancellation of the UN Security Council meeting as changing the law on one’s own land was an internal matter for the country.
Addressing a press conference, Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi said: “We are extremely disturbed and shocked by what we see happening in the United Nations. We view it as a matter of grave and deep concern to the entire nation, to every citizen and resident of India,” Singhvi said.
“Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh is an integral, inalienable, untouchable part of India, no other body, group, organisation, individual can assert to the contrary. This is a non-negotiable, non-discussable issue as far as India is concerned.”
“In last 65-66 years, it is for the first time that issue of Kashmir is being internationalized at UNSC,” he said.
