PDP's Kashmir maps "highly objectionable": Congress

Asks Mehbooba Mufti to withdraw controversial maps


Sweta Ranjan | February 14, 2011

Congress on Monday commented on the issue of the politically damaging maps circulated by People's Democratic Party (PDP) depicting Aksai Chin and Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK) as separate from India's territory saying that the move by the party is highly objectionable and could have long term political and diplomatic implications for the country.

"No one should ignore the resolution passed on February 22, 1994 regarding the depiction of the Indian territory. PoK and Aksai Chin remain integral parts of India," Congress spokesperson Manish Tiwari told the media here.

He said that it was the Congress' advise to PDP that it withdraw such images. "The PDP chief  is venturing areas that are none of her business," Tiwari said, refering to Mehbooba Mufti.

Reiterating that the government of India had the final say on such issues, the Congress leader warned that it would be acceptable of no one suggest anything on the territorial integrity of India as it was the governmnet's reserve alone.
