"Prime Minister Modi seems more concerned about Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, which is welcome, than he is interested in holding talks with India's Kashmiris," Digvijay told reporters.

"Boosting trust among Kashmiris, whether they belong to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir or India-occupied Kashmir, is possible only through dialogue," he said.

The Congress General Secretary later corrected himself by saying he only meant that Modi is not worried about "India's Kashmir -- not worried about the valley -- but worried about Pak-occupied Kashmir".

Digvijay's gaffe invited immediate reactions on social media.

Bollywood actor Praesh Rawal tweeted: "Digvijay Singh ji calls J&K as 'India occupied Kashmir'. It was his #HappyRakshaBandhan gift to his Pakistani sisters".
