Congress book labels Kashmir as 'Indian occupied Kashmir'; calls it printing error

Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh) [India], June 3 (ANI): A book depicting the failures of three years of Prime Minister Narendra
Modi's government may land the Congress party in a controversy as it has described Jammu and Kashmir State as 'Indian
Occupied Kashmir'.
A booklet named Aanch was launched in Lucknow today, where senior Congress leader and former Jammu and Kashmir chief
minister Ghulam Nabi Azad and Congress leader Raj Babbar were also invited.
Under the section security, the booklet displayed a map where the Kashmir state was labeled as 'Indian occupied
Kashmir', while explaining about the challenges faced by India with the construction of China Pakistan Economic
Corridor (CPEC).
However, the Congress party swung into defensive mode, calling the gaffe a "printing error'.
"This is a printing error. However, we should have taken caution, we have committed a grave mistake, and we will
ensure that such type of errors is not repeated," Congress leader Ajay Makhan told ANI.
Makhan went on to further add that the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had committed the same mistake in 2014,
where it had displayed the same map in their website.
"But the difference between Congress and the BJP is that we apologise for our mistake immediately. In 2014, the BJP
displayed the map with same error in their website. Till now they have not apologised," he said. (ANI)
