New Delhi: The Indian Overseas Congress had condemned the Kashmir resolution passed at UK’s Labour Party annual conference on October 8 and clarified that no outsiders can interfere in the affairs of Jammu and Kashmir, stated news agency ANI.
“We condemned Kashmir resolution passed at Labour Party annual conference and made it clear that J&K is an integral part of India, no intervention from outside will be accepted, ” read the official statement by Indian Overseas Congress as tweeted by news agency ANI.
Accepting an invitation from Jeremy Corbyn of UK’s Labour party, a team of Indian Overseas Congress had on October 8 met Labour Party’s Jeremy Corbyn.
Britain’s Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn had noted that the language used in the controversial Kashmir resolution passed by the Labour party is open to being ‘misinterpreted as hostile to India’ even as he was in favour of the emergency motion passed against the abrogation of Article 370. After Corbyn announced of discussing the human rights situation in Kashmir with the IOC UK representatives, a war of words broke out between two Indian parties namely BJP and Congress.
Meanwhile, at the Labour party’s annual conference, the IOC had also raised concerns with regard to the security situation concerning Indian communities in the UK. For instance, the party had pointed out at the recent attack on the Indian High Commission during Independence Day celebrations. News agency ANI quoted the Indian Overseas Congress as saying, “We (Indian Diaspora) believe that London Mayor Mr Sadiq Khan was behind these forces. We urged Mr Corbyn to put pressure on Pakistan to stop funding and providing training to terrorist groups in Pakistan.”
It must be noted that India has categorically told the international community that no third party has any role on the Kashmir issue.
