‘Half-Truths, Untruths Being Peddled By U.S. Media On J&K’

The administrative reorganisation of Jammu and Kashmir and the abrogation of Article 370 are India’s internal matter and do not impinge on the country’s external boundaries or the Line of Control, India’s ambassador to the United States Harsh Vardhan Shringla has said. Article 370 was meant to be temporary in nature and should have been abrogated a long time ago, he explained, adding that due legislative process was followed by the government in doing away with the provision. Seeking to counter what he called speculation, half-truths and untruths peddled in the media, primarily the U.S. media, Shringla said 91 per cent of the Kashmir valley is restriction-free and there is no communication gap. Rejecting reports of disruption in medical services in the valley due to the restrictive measures imposed by the government, Shringla said seven lakh people had availed of OPD services in the month of August.
