Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s daughter and TRS MP Kavitha made controversial remarks on Kashmir and Telangana in a recent interview to a national daily. She stated that both Telangana and Kashmir were separate countries and were merged forcibly to India post Independence. She also affirmed, “We need to come out clean on Jammu Kashmir. Few parts were not ours, we should agree, we should redraw the international lines, and move on.”
Kavitha was criticized by National parties for such remarks. But, Pakistan media seems to be happy with her statement. A leading Pakistan daily highlighted her comments:
“Indian lawmaker K Kavitha, who is member of Lok Sabha, the lower house of the Indian parliament, has categorically stated that Jammu Kashmir and Telangana are not parts of India and New Delhi has forcibly occupied these territories.”
Will Kavitha clarify on her comments at least now as the issue is growing bigger everyday with India’s foreign affairs getting affected?
