Does Congress want to internationalise Kashmir issue; asks Rajnath Singh


MUMBAI (Maharashtra): Indian Defence Minister Rajnath Singh has  questioned the Congress party over its UK chapter representatives’ meeting with the Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.

“I got to know about the Overseas Congress delegation meeting Corbyn on the human rights situation in Kashmir. They have not criticised it. I would like to ask Congress — Do you want to internationalise the issue of Kashmir,” said Singh while addressing an election rally.

Continuing his assault on the Congress, Singh said: “Chinese President Xi Jinping came to India and held informal summit with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The Prime Minister did not discuss Kashmir with him but your leaders are going to England and daring to internationalise our internal matter of Kashmir.”

Highlighting the work of Prime Minister Modi, Singh said the perception of the world about India is changing.

“Today, the world acknowledges that India is no more a weak country. Now, India is not a country that will talk to anyone by standing on their knees. We can now talk to anyone by standing on our two feet with all our might,” he said.

Singh also slammed the comments of opposition leaders over his ‘Shastra Puja’ during Rafale aircraft’s handover ceremony, stating that his actions were endorsed and supported by the people of all communities.
