Posts say trip is a 'PR stunt'
Twitterati today slammed the visit of the European Parliament members (MEPs) to Kashmir.
They also called out the role of Madi Sharma, who has attracted attention for organising the visit. Several people on Twitter asked why Opposition MPs had not been allowed to visit Jammu and Kashmir and called the MEP visit a "PR stunt".
Twitter users asked why Sharma paid such a hefty amount for the trip as well as raised questions on her role as an "international broker".
The Q is why will @MadiSharma1 pay such a hefty amount for this, most likely our Govt. is paying! If yes, why do we need to buy international support? When @AmitShah ji was yelling to not make it an international issue!

The point of debate isn't why #EUMPsInKashmir ,but the issue is what was the need for an international broker #MadiSharma to bring them to #Kashmir & why allowed a press interaction who they're to judge?— Najma 🇮🇳 (@najmafk) October 30, 2019
YES Nicolaus not only opposition but every concern person should be allowed. https://t.co/mRZW8FYc5g
All about #MadiSharma— Sidrah (@SidrahDP) October 30, 2019
Diabolocal & Dubious.
The GOI is officially is a soup as far as this is concerned. PR charade gone awry and how. Shameful.
Kudos to the media for taking this up. #Kashmir https://t.co/krRt0JYSc1
Besides the jibe at Madi Sharma, many Twitter trained their guns at the Modi government calling the visit a "political drama," a "PR stunt" and a "vacation."
So basically,— Madiha Afra (@Madihahahah__) October 30, 2019
There's governance and government to solve people's problems and bring peace in the country.
But here we have 365 days of political drama due to which the given peace is also taken off, and the real problem is our government :))#bjpshivsena #EUMPsInKashmir #NCP
Can someone help me understand, how a PR stunt can conceal violations of free movement, free speech and unjustified detentions?— Bhavika Kapoor (@BhavikaKapoor5) October 30, 2019
I feel this stunt will prove to be a boomerang for #Modi govt.
The truth will remain truth. #EUMPsInKashmir #370abrogation
Our PM visit abroad n learn the tricks of suppressing facts of human right violation. Such unofficial EU delegations r paid TOYS of fascist BJP government. This is how Israel do tactics of hiding their atrocities on Palestinans.#EUMPsInKashmir #EUDelegation #KashmirVisitFaceoff https://t.co/s84DReILFu— Suhail Shaikh (@suhailshkh05) October 29, 2019
Actually #EUMPsInKashmir were just holidaying in Srinagar after conducting hectic workshops to train the IT cell in Delhi.— Madhavan Narayanan (@madversity) October 29, 2019
And as usual, Twitterati could not keep themselves away from taking potshots at the lawmakers.
