He continued, "On this holy day of Janmashtmi, Congress leaders and other leftist leaders should give the message of peace, harmony, brotherhood, unity and patriotism."
Accusing the Congress of "patronising terrorism and separatism", Raina said, "For the last 70 years, it is Congress party and all these leftists who gave a sense of separatism and supported terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir."
A delegation of opposition leaders including Congress leader Rahul Gandhi was not allowed to step out of Srinagar airport and was sent back an hour after landing in the city.
Parties like Congress, CPI, DMK, RJD, TMC, NCP and JD(S) were the part of the opposition all-party delegation.
The delegation was visiting Srinagar to see the ground reality, days after the Centre abrogated Article 370 from the region.
