Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Wednesday accused the country’s first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru of internationalising the Kashmir issue by taking it to the United Nations and said India’s neighbour was still misusing it.

“The Congress internationalised the issue. It was our first Prime Minister Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru ji who took it to the United Nations in December 1947. Why?” Sitharaman said.
