India’s version not included in UN report on J&K: Congress

New Delhi, Aug 1: Congress member Manish Tewari on Thursday said a report released by the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights on Jammu and Kashmir was prepared without taking India’s version and demanded that the government should look into the matter.
This is the second report, he said, adding that the earlier report was released in June 2014.
“In both the reports, India has been severely criticised,” he said and stressed that India’s perspective has not been taken in the report.
The world over people have read this report very seriously and opinions are formed, he said during Zero Hour in the Lok Sabha.
The Congress member said that India’s point of view should also have been taken while preparing the report as the image of India was getting tarnished.
