Congress leader Manish Tewari on Monday asked Punjab Congress to introspect whether those who do not consider J&K to be a part of India should be there in the party.
“I urge Harish Rawat, AICC General Secretary and in-charge Punjab to seriously introspect that those who do not consider Jammu and Kashmir to be a part of India and others who have ostensibly Pro Pakistan leanings should be a part of Punjab Congress. It mocks all those who shed blood for India.” He said in the tweet.

On Sunday, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh slammed Dr Pyare Lal Garg and Malwinder Singh Mali for their remarks on Pakistan and Kashmir, calling it “anti-national”.
As reported by Hindustan Times, Singh and Tewari was reacting to reported remarks of Dr Pyare Lal Garg questioning Captain Amarinder Singh’s criticism of Pakistan, as well as an earlier statement of Malwinder Singh Mali in which he had called Kashmir a separate state and both India and Pakistan its illegal occupants.
In an interview with ANI, Tewari further asked whether such people have “the right to live in the country, forget about being in the party?”
Dr Pyare Lal Garg and Malwinder Singh Mali were made advisors to Navjot Sidhu after he was appointed as the president of the Punjab Congress.
