Pak plot to show J&K in bad light before UN session
Pak plot to show J&K in bad light before UN session

New Delhi, July 1 (TIWN) In the run up to the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) session, the Indian listening posts have picked up chatters that the ISI and the Pakistan Foreign Office are asking their station chiefs and diplomatic missions to drum up negative media coverage on Kashmir after the recent initiatives taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The 76th session of the UNGA will open on September 14 and continue till September 30. In the run up to the UNGA, Indian listening posts have come across messaging to ensure negative publicity about Kashmir and also proliferate it in the international media.

Pakistan seems to be uneasy about the progress made in the fields of education, health and the other developmental initiatives take by the Modi government, along with the impending restoration of statehood for Jammu and Kashmir for which an all-party meeting was convened recently in New Delhi.

A process is already on to ramp up negative sentiments by Pakistan as #KashmirRejectsModiAPC is trending on Twitter.

Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has described Narendra Modi's all-party meeting with top political leaders from Jammu and Kashmir as a "drama" and a "PR exercise".

"In my view, it was a drama. Why was it a drama? Because at best it could be called a public relations exercise, but nothing was achieved," Qureshi said a day after the high-level meeting on Jammu and Kashmir in New Delhi on June 24.
