Cong backs Modi Govt, slams UN report on J&K

Cong backs Modi Govt, slams UN report on J&K

New Delhi, June 14 (UNI) Striking a different note, the Congress party on Thursday backed the Modi government stand in rejecting the UN report on alleged violation of human rights in Jammu and Kashmir and asserted that the UN document only reflects "zero understanding of situation in J&K".

"Jammu & Kashmir is an integral and inseparable part of India. We reject UN Human Rights Report as a prejudiced attempt by vested interests to hurt India's Sovereignty and National Interests," tweeted Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala.



He also said: "Congress party supports the Government's stand in dismissing the report".

"UNHRC prepared this report remotely with zero understanding of situation in J&K. How does the report justify terrorism by self styled militants of JeM & Hizbul Mujahideen?", he said adding "should the UN overlook the state sponsored terrorism being exported on Indian soil by Pakistan?"

Another senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel also took to the micro blogging site and wrote: "We reject any such ploy to interfere in the internal affairs of India as Jammu & Kashmir is an integral part of India".

Mr Patel, a known confidant of UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi also said "Government deserves our full support to deal with the report".

Earlier in the day Ministry of External Affairs in strongly worded reaction rejected the UN report and also registered protest with the global body saying such reports were "fallacious, tendentious and motivated".

The MEA spokesperson when asked to comment on the 49-page report of the UN Human Rights Council said, in fact the report violates India's sovereignty and territorial integrity.
