digvijay singh surgical strike

New Delhi: Congress leader Digvijaya Singh on Monday questioned the surgical strikes and accused the government of lying, prompting a sharp reaction from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), saying the opposition party was blind in its hatred for Prime Minister Narendra Modi. has happened and has insulted the armed forces. After his statement sparked a major political controversy, the Congress distanced itself from it, saying it was his own view and did not reflect the party’s stand.

Addressing a public meeting during the Bharat Jodo Yatra in Jammu and Kashmir, Singh alleged that the government had not agreed to its (CRPF) request to airlift Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel from Srinagar to Delhi and In a 2019 terror attack in Pulwama, 40 soldiers lost their lives. The former chief minister of Madhya Pradesh, who has often courted controversy with his comments, said, he talks about surgical strikes. They talk about killing many people but haven’t given any proof. They are ruling with the help of bundles of lies. At the same time, the BJP hit out at the Congress, saying such comments showed that the Rahul Gandhi-led padyatra in the country was just a Bharat Jodo Yatra in name only, while he and his party colleagues were working to break the country. are doing.

BJP spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia alleged, this is actually a ‘Break India’ journey. If they speak against the armed forces, India will not tolerate, he said. Rahul Gandhi and the Congress hate PM Modi, but it seems that they are so blinded by hatred that their dedication towards the country has diminished. He said Congress leaders raised questions on the surgical strike soon after the Air Force said it had struck terror camps in Pakistan’s Balakot in response to the Pulwama terror attack. Rahul and the Congress have no faith in our brave armed forces, claimed Bhatia. He has repeatedly raised questions and insulted the citizens of India and our armed forces.

Meanwhile, the opposition party swung into action to undo the damage after the BJP tried to corner the Congress on the issue of national security. Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh said in a tweet, “The views expressed by senior leader Digvijaya Singh are his own and do not reflect the stand of the Congress.” Surgical strikes were carried out before 2014 by the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government. The Congress has supported and will continue to support all military action taken in the national interest. Singh, however, continued with his attack and in a tweet said, “Where did the terrorists in Pulwama attack get 300 kg of RDX (explosive)?” DSP Davinder Singh was caught with terrorists, but why was he released again? We also want to know about the friendly relations between the Prime Ministers of Pakistan and India.

In a video message attached with the tweet, Singh said that 40 CRPF personnel laid down their lives in Pulwama, but this government could not reveal where the three quintals of RDX came from. Also, the government could not even answer where is DSP Davinder Singh who was found involved with terrorists, he said. Why was he let off and why was a sedition case not registered against him? We also want to know from the Prime Minister what kind of relationship he has with the Pakistani Prime Minister that both of them are appreciating each other, the Congress leader said in the video message. At least, they should answer these questions.
