This is the dispute
It is noteworthy that two of Navjot Sidhu’s advisors, Pyare Lal Garg and Malvinder Singh Mali, recently made such statements and comments on social media that the entire Congress party was surrounded by all-around criticism. Garg defended Pakistan in his statement justifying Captain Amarinder Singh’s criticism of Pakistan, while Malvinder Mali issued a statement terming Kashmir as a separate country, alleging that Kashmir has been occupied by India and Pakistan.
Mali also expressed his opinion on the issue of abrogation of Article 370 of the Constitution, under which the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir got special status. He raised the question in his statement that if Kashmir was a part of India then what was the need to remove Article 370 and 35A? Mali didn’t stop there, two days ago he put up a controversial cartoon of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on the cover of his Facebook page, with a skeleton hanging over a gun held by Indira Gandhi and a pile of skeletons behind Indira Gandhi. Hours later, Mali uploaded a photo of Captain Amarinder Singh’s personal life on his Facebook page and made derogatory remarks about him.
