New Delhi, October 10: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday attacked the Indian National Congress after its representatives had a meeting with opposition party's UK representatives along with Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party. According to Corbyn's tweet, the discussion was about the human rights situation in Jammu and Kashmir. The delegation included Kamal Dhaliwal, who heads the overseas Congress in the United Kingdom, and considered close to Rahul Gandhi.

"A very productive meeting with UK representatives from the Indian Congress Party where we discussed the human rights situation in Kashmir. There must be a de-escalation and an end to the cycle of violence and fear which has plagued the region for so long," Jeremy Corbyn tweeted.
