Congress shows its Anti-National colours : Releases Booklet showing J&K as Indian Occupied Kashmir

The Congress criticised on Saturday the Narendra Modi government for being “lax” on national security, but the party found itself mired in a controversy after releasing a booklet that referred to Kashmir as “Indian-occupied Kashmir”.

The wrong map on Kashmir was published on page 12 of the 15-page booklet titled “National Security Endangered. Bravado, Rhetoric, Hyperbole Rules” about the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.

“The CPEC worth $54 billion built through PoK/Balochistan connecting Gwadar Port in Arabian Sea to China with base for Chinese submarines. Does it not compromise India’s sovereignty over PoK and affects our strategic interests in the Arabian Sea with Chinese Naval Presence,” read the booklet.

Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee (UPCC) spokesman Satyadev Tripathi, however, said the map was a “printing mistake”.

“The Congress’s policy on Jammu and Kashmir is very clear. This printing mistake does not change the party’s policy,” said Tripathi.

The booklet was circulated to the media at a press conference addressed by All India Congress Committee (AICC) general secretary (UP in-charge) Ghulam Nabi Azad in the presence of UPCC president Raj Babbar at the party headquarters in Lucknow.

Azad said the Modi government failed to keep its promises and was “misleading the people by inaugurating projects” initiated during the UPA government.

He said Modi invited Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for his swearing-in ceremony, and targeted the Prime Minister for his Pakistan and China policy.

The senior Congress leader said that out of the 172 terror attacks in the last three years of the Modi government, there were 12 major attacks in the past 21 months.

Azad said the NDA government has compromised India’s defence preparedness as the Indian Air Force’s fighter fleet had fallen to a record low, and added that the defence capital budget has been drastically reduced by the NDA government.
