New Delhi: BJP today demanded an apology from Kashmiri separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani for his claims that Narendra Modi had sent emissaries to meet him on the Kashmir issue. Rejecting Geelani's claims as baseless and mischievous, BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad said no representative of the Gujarat Chief Minister has ever met the separatist leader. We would like to demand from Geelani that he must apologise for making this false and unfounded statement, Prasad told reporters here. Geelani had yesterday claimed that two emissaries of Modi had approached him on March 22 for a meeting with him while he was in Delhi for treatment. The separatist leader said he rejected the offer citing Modi's RSS background.
