Commentary from Digvijaya on surgical strikes: Congress' DNA, according to MP CM, is pro-Pakistan
A day after Congressman Digvijaya Singh questioned the surgical strikes and charged the Centre of spreading misinformation, Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh Shivraj Singh Chouhan said on Tuesday that "the DNA of Congress is pro-Pakistan."
Chouhan continued by criticizing the Congress, claiming they are guilty of the "sin" of depressing military morale.
During the Bharat Jodo Yatra in Jammu and Kashmir on Monday, former Madhya Pradesh CM Digvijaya Singh spoke in front of a crowd and questioned the surgical strikes.
The Rajya Sabha member also said that the Central Reserve Police Force's (CRPF) request to fly its people from Srinagar to Delhi was denied by the Centre, and that as a result, 40 soldiers lost their lives in the 2019 terror incident in Pulwama.
The Congress distanced itself from his remarks, claiming that they were "his own" and did not represent the party's perspective, since they sparked a significant political controversy.
The DNA of Congress is Pakistan-parast, Chouhan said to reporters on Tuesday (pro-Pakistan). They may request evidence of a surgical strike on occasion. They sometimes demand Ram Setu as confirmation of Lord Ram's presence. Digvijaya Singh reportedly requested a surgical strike proof while strolling with Congressman Rahul Gandhi, according to Chouhan.
"They are undermining the morale of the military troops, which is a shame. This demonstrates that they support Pakistan, according to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader.
Digvijaya Singh's comments prompted Chouhan to ask Rahul Gandhi, "What sort of Bharat Jodo Yatra is this? You're marching with the Tukde-Tukde gang. The military's morale is deteriorating. Regarding the military, Rahul Gandhi is also voicing concerns. This is not being a patriot. When Digvijaya Singh was the chief minister of the state, Chouhan said that Madhya Pradesh was the "stronghold" of the outlawed organization Student Islamic Movement of India (SIMI).
He said, "At least the Congress should not commit the sin and crime of depressing the Army's morale."
In his speech on Monday, Congressman Digvijaya Singh remarked, "They speak about surgical strikes. Although no evidence is provided, they claim to have slain several individuals. They hold power by spreading a bunch of falsehoods. The opinions expressed by senior politician Digvijaya Singh are his personal and do not represent the viewpoint of the Congress, the AICC general secretary of communications Jairam Ramesh later said on Twitter. Surgical strikes were conducted by the UPA administration prior to 2014. All military operations carried out in the interest of the country have received approval from Congress and will continue to do so. However, Digvijaya Singh continued his course of assault unmoved.
Later, he asked, "Where did the terrorists acquire 300 kg of RDX in the Pulwama incident? " in a tweet written in Hindi. Why was DSP Davinder Singh freed after being found with terrorists? Also on our agenda is information on the relationship between the Indian and Pakistani prime leaders.
