A day after BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi said a map on Arvind Kejriwal's party's official website shows Jammu and Kashmir as part of Pakistan, the AAP retorted, saying the saffron party's website shows Kashmir as "disputed land".

The AAP gave the link to BJP's official website to substantiate its claim.

"BJP website shows Kashmir as disputed land, this is how BJP lies. We are ready for a debate," said Manish Sisodia, AAP leader.

Referring to Kejriwal, Modi had on Wednesday said: "A map of the country on the website of his party has shown Kashmir in Pakistan. A senior member (Prashant Bhushan) of his party demands plebiscite in Kashmir."

The AAP was quick to deny the charge, saying it was a colour-coded map showing state-wise trend of donations to the party and not a truncated map as claimed by Modi.

The party had during the day launched an attack on the BJP and Modi on social media sites, especially on Twitter. By evening, Sisodia also tweeted about it.

Reacting to AAP's assertion that it was ready for a debate on the issue, BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli said "I am also open to any debate".

"Why are they (AAP) nit-picking? What we said was that it was AAP which had put up that map on its website, whereas our website shows a Google Map. Moreover, no BJP member has ever asked for a plebiscite in Kashmir or a referendum on deployment of army there," he said.
