New Delhi, Aug. 18 (ANI): Minister of State in Prime Minister's Office (PMO) Jitendra Singh today asked Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh to introspect his India occupied Kashmir remark and said that all political parties must speak in one voice on the grave issue of Kashmir.

"I don't want to make any personal comment on this, but he should do some introspection. The government has already decided its stand that we need to take against Pakistan with regard to the matter of Jammu and Kashmir," he told ANI.

"There should be a mutual unity among all parties on this grave matter. I think Congress also needs to introspect on the same so that they can clearly define their policy and intentions," he added.

The Congress general secretary earlier in the day 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 talk," 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.(ANI)
