Yesterday, Finance Minister posted a tweet saying that some of the media reports of his Jammu speech were inaccurate. See below:

And today, Indian Express has regretted their error in reporting Finance Minister Arun Jaitley’s Jammu speech. The Indian express reported on Arun Jaitley’s speech in Samba quoting him as saying stone pelting in Kashmir valley is a new way of Pakistan to attack India’s integrity. They are not satyagrahis, but assailants.
And this is what Arun Jaitley has said in his speech. But Indian express reported adding that Arun Jaitley has called the stone-pelters as “stooges” of Pakistan.
But Indian Express realised the mistake and today they regretted their error. Here is what Indian Express reported:
This image of Indian Express’ regret was shared by @arunjaitley on twitter:
