"The Labour party has passed a resolution condemning Indian government and taken pro-Pakistan stand. Majority of Indian communities are not interacting with Labour party leaders. It is very unfortunate that Indian overseas Congress which is led Sam Pitrdoa has decided to approach him who is blatantly anti-India and Jeremy Corbyn. It is a betrayal of Indian interest in the UK and it also shows the bankruptcy of Indian intellectuals in UK." Chauthaiwala also spoke about there not being a consensus within Congress on the revocation of Article 370. "Even our president Amit Shah pointed out that various Congress leaders speaking in different voices on the 370 issue. There is no unanimity and their overseas branch taking a such a blatant and against Indian interest, this is highly deplorable," Vijay Chauthaiwale said.
