The 15-page booklet titled "National Security Endangered". The page talks about the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor project and its consequences for India.
"The CPEC worth $54 billion built through PoK/Balochistan connecting Gwadar Port in the Arabian Sea to China with a base for Chinese submarines. Does it not compromise India's sovereignty over PoK and affects our strategic interests in the Arabian Sea with Chinese naval presence", read the booklet.
When asked to respond, Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Raj Babbar said, "Jinhone printing kiya hai unhone ispe bayaan de diya hai, bar-bar 4 log alag alag bayaan denge koi matlab nhi banta".
SIALKOT-Member Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) Legislative Assembly Ch Ishaq has said that President Mamnoon Hussain has won the hearts of Kashmiri people by reiterating Pakistan's complete support to the Kashmir cause. "This printing mistake does not change the party's policy", Satyadev said.
"The Modi government has been busy inaugurating schemes that were initiated by the previous UPA government...."
"Prime Minister Narendra Modi seems to be a confused man on the issue of foreign policy".
Chennai: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday stated that he was brushed off by Defence Minister Arun Jaitley months ago, when he had warned him that the Centre is heading towards "setting Kashmir on fire". So, is Congress speaking the language of Pakistan? "Kashmir is India's strength and they (the government) are making it India's weakness", Rahul lashed out, perhaps in response to the present state of affairs. "However, we should have taken caution, we have committed a grave mistake", Congress leader Ajay Maken said.
In August 2016, Senior Congress party leader Digvijay Singh had also described Kashmir as "India-occupied Kashmir" in an attempt to criticising PM Modi. He claimed that a map, which was released in 2014 when India and China signed a treaty, showed Arunachal Pradesh as part of China. "We strongly condemn it", BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain told ANI.
