New Delhi: UK Opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn's tweet on a "very productive meeting" with UK representatives of the Congress and a discussion with them on Kashmir has fueled a political firestorm, with the ruling BJP calling it "appalling" and demanding an explanation.

"Appalling! (Congress) owes it to the people of India to explain what its leaders are telling foreign leaders about India. India will give a befitting reply to Congress for these shameful shenanigans," tweeted the BJP on Jeremy Corbyn's controversial post.

The Labour Party leader tweeted a photo with the Congress delegation and wrote: "A very productive meeting with UK representatives from the Indian Congress Party where we discussed the human rights situation in Kashmir.

There must be a de-escalation and an end to the cycle of violence and fear which has plagued the region for so long." Prominent in the photo is Kamal Dhaliwal, who is the Congress president of the UK wing.

He is believed to be close to Rahul Gandhi - one photo shows the former Congress president feeding him cake -- and has been photographed with various Congress leaders.
