TRS MP's comment on Kashmir and Telangana unfortunate: Congress
New Delhi, July 23: The Congress party on Monday staged protests against TRS MP K Kavitha's remarks that India should redraw the boundaries in Jammu and Kashmir, accepting that "few parts" are not "ours". She made the remarks at The Indian Express Idea Exchange programme.

Both Kashmir and Telangana were both forcefully annexed to the Indian Union after Independence, she had said at the event.

Here is what Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi said in response to Kavitha's comment: "While it was welcome that the TRS MP has exhibited a desire "to look at other parts of India and understand those areas", "certain portions of her statement, both in respect of J&K and Telangana, are factually incorrect." Some portions of her statement "perhaps inadvertently casts serious doubts on the integrity and legitimacy of the Indian Union", he said.

Kavitha said although she feels strongly about J&K, India should come clean on the state. "Few parts were not ours, we should agree, we should redraw the international lines and move on," she had said.

Sanghvi said that Kashmir is an intrinsic part of India and Kavitha's observations that J&K and Telangana were both forcefully annexed to India is unfortunate and obviously not correct to lump or club such desperate situations together in general statement".
