New Delhi, [India], Aug. 28 (ANI): Coming down heavily on Pakistan for interfering in the Kashmir issue, the Janata Dal (United) on Sunday said the South Asian neighbour has started behaving like an enemy.

"Pakistan has started behaving like an enemy. Next month, either the Prime Minister or the Finance Minister is going to the UN. An all-party delegation should also go there which should stand by the Government of India and talk about Kashmir," JD (U) leader K.C. Tyagi told ANI.

Tyagi's reaction came after Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif nominated 22 parliamentarians as special envoys to highlight the unrest in Kashmir globally.

"I have decided to send these parliamentarians for fighting the Kashmir cause in different parts of the world. These special envoys have the strength of the people of Pakistan, prayers from the Kashmiri people across the Line of Control, mandate of the Parliament and support from the government", the Dunya News quoted Prime Minister Sharif, as saying.

Earlier, Pakistan had raised the Kashmir issue in the United Nations after violence broke out in the valley over the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani by the security forces.

Then, Pakistan's Permanent Resident to the UN Maleeha Lodi had called Wani's elimination as "extra-judicial" and described him as a " Kashmiri leader".

Since then, Pakistan has been using its diplomatic platforms to apprise other nations about the unrest. (ANI)
