BJP leader and former Army chief J J Singh on Sunday lashed out at Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann over his meeting with UK MP Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi and said the AAP should clarify if it endorses the “pro-separatist and anti-India” views of the British lawmaker. Dhesi, a Labour Party MP, met Mann along with AAP Rajya Sabha member Raghav Chadha last week.

After the meeting, Dhesi tweeted, “Grateful to Punjab Chief Minister @BhagwantMann for warmth with which he received me at his Chandigarh residence. We…discussed at length NRI hopes, anxieties and desire to see Punjab progress. He assured me his best to address these issues.”

AAP owes an clarification to the country whether it supports his views on Kashmir and other matters which are against our country.”
