Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has hit out at Pakistan and clarified that although Congress disagrees with the govt on a number of issues, it supports the stand that Kashmir is an internal matter with no scope for any interference.
New Delhi, August 28, 2019: Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said that Kashmir is India’s internal matter and there is no scope for any other country, including Pakistan, to intervene. In a series of tweets, Rahul said that he may disagree with the government on many issues, but Kashmir will remain the country’s internal issue.
There is violence in Jammu & Kashmir. There is violence because it is instigated and supported by Pakistan which is known to be the prime supporter of terrorism across the world.

Rahul’s remarks on Kashmir issue comes days after he and other opposition leaders were denied permission to enter Srinagar and repatriated to Delhi directly from Srinagar airport. Rahul had then said that he got a taste of the current “draconian administration” in Jammu and Kashmir when he and other opposition leaders were not allowed to visit Srinagar.
The BJP and other political parties including a few from the opposition camp have accused the Congress and its leaders of speaking Pakistan’s language on Kashmir issue.
Pakistan has been using Rahul and other Congress leaders’ remarks on Kashmir to create instability, spread fake news and discredit India.
