Shekhar Gupta led ThePrint publishes fake news again, USA denies reports of India informing USA before abrogating Article 370

The United States Department of State has rejected all these claims and said that the Indian government did not consult or inform the US Government before moving to revoke Jammu and Kashmir’s special constitutional status.

After the historic event of abrogation of Article 370 and bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir into Union Territories, there have been attempts by a certain section of the media to mislead the people and discredit Narendra Modi government.

Shekhar Gupta‘s The Print resorted to peddling false news after it claimed that the Modi government had briefed the US about its plans to scrap Article 370 twice.

In an article, the Print has claimed that their sources had confirmed them that the External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar had briefed his American counterpart, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, about the Modi government’s intentions to abrogate Article 370 and Article 35A for Jammu and Kashmir in August on the sidelines of ASEAN summit in Bangkok.

The Print article

The report says, the US was informed two times before the abrogation of Article 370. First time in February, two days after the Pulwama attack, National Security Advisor Ajit Doval had phoned his American counterpart John Bolton and told him about the Modi government’s plans to do away with the ‘special status’ for Jammu and Kashmir, reported ThePrint.

The second time, Jaishankar had informed Pompeo on the sidelines of the ninth East Asia Summit Foreign Ministers’ Meeting in Bangkok on 1 August.

However, the United States Department of State has rejected all these claims and said that the Indian government did not consult or inform the US Government before moving to revoke Jammu and Kashmir’s special constitutional status.

Shekhar Gupta’s ThePrint has a history of scaremongering and spreads fake news to target Narendra Modi government. Addition to that, Shekhar Gupta and his team have also attempted to script their own history by pushing fairytales as facts.
