TIL Desk/National/Haryana/ Defence Minister Rajnath Singh has accused the Congress of internationalising the Kashmir issue and not speaking up when terrorists violated human rights there. Addressing a poll rally here, the BJP leader brought up a recent meeting in Britain between Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn and the Indian Overseas Congress, saying they held a discussion on alleged human rights violations in Kashmir.
I want to ask Congress leaders where are the human rights violations taking place. Human rights violations were taking place when terrorist activities were occurring (in Kashmir). Why didn’t you speak at that time? he said. Seeking a reply from the opposition party, the BJP leader said, Kashmir is our internal matter. Will there be a discussion on it in other countries?
you want to internationalise the Kashmir issue? I want a clarification from the
Congress friends in this regard. But they do not have any reply, Singh said at
the rally in Bhiwani district, ahead of the October 21 assembly elections in
Haryana. “Ajeebo garib halaat in logon ne paida kar diyen hain, pata nahin
kya ho gya hai? Inki buddhi maari gayee hai (They have created a strange
situation. What has happened to them? It seems they have lost their
mind),” he said.
