Decision on Kashmir is India's internal matter, Pak provoking violence: Rahul Gandhi
New Delhi : Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi cleared his views on Kashmir and asserted that while he disagrees with the way government is handling situation in Kashmir, he wants to make it loud and clear that Kashmir is India's internal issue and violence in Jammu and Kashmir is instigated by Pakistan.
The tweets from Rahul Gandhi comes two days after he was returned from Srinagar Airport. The Congress also released a statement referring to "reports citing an alleged petition moved by Pakistani Government to UN on Jammu & Kashmir", in which Rahul Gandhi had been "mischievously dragged to justify the pack of lies and deliberate misinformation being spread by Pakistan".
"I disagree with this government on many issues. But, let me make this absolutely clear: Kashmir is India's internal issue and there is no room for Pakistan or any other foreign country to interfere in it," tweeted Rahul Gandhi.
"There is violence in Jammu and 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," he added.

Restrictions have been imposed in Jammu and Kashmir since August 5 when government announced scrapping of Article 370 of Indian Constitution and bifurcate it into two Union Territories.
The Jammu And Kashmir Information and Public Relations Department on Friday tweeted political leaders should not "not visit Srinagar as they would be putting other people to inconvenience" at a "time when the government is trying to protect the people of Jammu and Kashmir from the threat of cross border terrorism and attacks..."
attempts should not be made by senior political leaders to disturb the gradual restoration of normal life. Political leaders are requested to cooperate and not visit Srinagar as they would be putting other people to inconvenience. (2/3)— DIPR-J&K (@diprjk) August 23, 2019
