The Jamaat-e-Islami of Kashmir has categorically denied the claims of prominent separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani that one of the leaders of Jamaat met a representative of BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.
BJP too has denied having sent any emissaries to Geelani or any other separatist leader for arranging a meeting with Modi or to get a commitment for resolution of Kashmir issue.
BJP said the claim is  "mischievous" and without any basis, PTI reported.
The statement said, the BJP's stand that Jammu and Kashmir was an integral part of India was very clear and there was no room for deliberations on this.
Syed Geelani, who is chairman of a faction of the Hurriyat conference, had on Friday claimed that BJP prime ministerial candidate, Narendra Modi had sent two of his emissaries to him (Geelani) on March 22 to get a commitment for resolution of the Kashmir issue. Geelani has said he rejected the proposal.
Geelani claimed Modi had sent his representatives to other separatist groups as well.
