New Delhi: The Congress on Saturday took on Pakistan People's Party (PPP) leader Bilawal Bhutto Zardari for his remark that he will "take back all of Kashmir" and said he was "day dreaming".

The official Congress Twitter account put up a picture of its former leader and ex-Prime Minister Indira Gandhi with the quote, "Pakistan has surrendered... Dhaka is now a free capital of a free country". She had said those words on December 16, 1971 after the conclusion of the Indo-Pak War.

Asking Bilawal to learn from history, the picture also highlighted in red '1948, 1965, 1971, 1999' -- the years when Pakistan lost wars with India.

AICC Secretary Sanjay Nirupam also tweeted on the issue saying, "What 3 generations of Bhutto family couldnt achieve Shah Nawaz, Zulfikar Ali & Benazir Daydreaming @BBhuttoZardari promised (sic)!"

Asking Bilawal to "shut up", he further tweeted, "India defeated Pakistan 4 times, In 48, 65, 71 & 99. Will make it 5/5, hope they remember this forever! #ShutUpBhutto".

Bilawal, considered the 'Gen-Next' politician of Pakistan, had yesterday told his party's workers in Multan in Pakistan's Punjab that PPP would get Kashmir back from India.

"I will take back Kashmir, all of it, and I will not leave behind a single inch of it because, like the other provinces, it belongs to Pakistan," the scion of the highly influential Bhutto family had said. Former Pakistan prime ministers Yousaf Raza Gilani and Raja Pervaiz Asharaf were present at his side when Bilawal made those comments.
