“Shame on you for admiring US interference on India’s internal matters. For the very first time J&K is witnessing very less terror activities and people are feeling safer. But the Congress never missed any opportunity to politisise India’s domestic matters and defame the country!” BJP MP Shobha Karandlaje said in a tweet.

Notably, Indian-American Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal had introduced a bill in the US House of Representatives, asking India to end restrictions on mass detentions and communications in Kashmir and ensure religious freedom.

Reacting over it , Tharoor, had said,”Admirable effort by US reps, whereas in our Parliament we have been unable even to have a discussion on the subject of Kashmir in the entire winter session. Shame.”
