Digvijaya Singh stirs row, calls Kashmir as IoK

Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh), Aug. 18 : In what may give the ruling dispensation fresh ammunition to target the opposition, Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh on Thursday used Indian occupied Kashmir (IoK) for Kashmir while attempting to corner Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the present state of affairs in the valley.

"Narendra Modi ji is more concerned about Pakistan occupied Kashmir. He thanks the people living in that area and that of Balochistan. But he is not ready to talk with people living in Kashmir. If we have to bring trust in the region, whether its Indian occupied Kashmir or Pakistan occupied Kashmir, we have to do that through talks," Singh told reporters.

The Congress leader, however, very soon went in damage control mode as he said that the Prime Minister is least bothered about Kashmir, which is an integral part of India.

"I said that Prime Minister Modi is not concerned about India's Kashmir but about PoK. Kashmir is an integral part of India," he said..
