Digvijaya declares his "utmost respect for the defense forces" as Jairam opens fire on the prime minister

An enraged Jairam Ramesh lashed out at the media on Tuesday, claiming that the questions should now be addressed at the Prime Minister in the midst of an ongoing controversy about Digvijaya Singh challenging the veracity of the 2019 surgical strikes.

Ramesh, a party MP in charge of communication, told the media while participating in the Bharat Jodo Yatra in Jammu and Kashmir a day after Singh stirred up controversy and the Congress distanced itself from the leader, saying that his party has already addressed all of the media's questions regarding the surgical strike controversy and that they should now focus on Prime Minister Narendra Modi. As the leaders and other padayatris marched on, Digvijaya Singh tried to put a stop to the argument by adding, "I have got the utmost esteem for the Defence forces."

Ramesh, the general secretary of the Congress, declined to respond to any queries, claiming that "We have addressed all the issues."

On Tuesday, the Rahul Gandhi-led Bharat Jodo Yatra continued from Sitni through Nagrota in J&K.

"We have addressed every query. Jairam Ramesh remarked, "You go and ask the Prime Minister the questions.

The Congress Party expressed itself anyway it pleased. Regarding this yesterday, I tweeted. I'm not going to say anything more," he remarked.

Ramesh said on Twitter that even the UPA administration had conducted surgical strikes.

The senior politician Digvijaya Singh's opinions are entirely his own and do not represent the views of the Congress. The UPA administration carried conducted surgical strikes prior to 2014. All military operations that serve the national interest have received and will get support from Congress, Ramesh tweeted.

This comes after Digvijaya Singh said there was no evidence supporting the 2019 surgical assault on Pakistan, despite the Center's denials.
Digvijaya Singh stated in a speech on Monday in Jammu, "They (the Centre) speak about surgical strikes and that they have killed so many of them but there is no evidence."

A CRPF convoy was assaulted by terrorists in Pulwama, Kashmir, on February 14, 2019, resulting in the deaths of 44 Indian soldiers. In retaliation, Indian Air Force fighter planes attacked a Jaish-e-Mohammed advanced terror training center in Balakot, Pakistan, on February 26, 2019. The IAF prevented Islamabad from attacking Indian military sites the day following.
Bharatiya Janata Party claims that the opposition party has insulted the military forces and has been "blinded" by its "hatred" for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, adding that such remarks are made at the direction of the highest leadership of Congress.

The "character" of the Congress party, according to BJP national spokesman Gaurav Bhatia, is to make "irresponsible statements."
Digvijaya Singh is accused of being involved in a number of issues, which Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia claims he has added to his "record of anti-national acts."

Tehseen Poonawalla, a political analyst and supporter of the Congress, strongly criticized Digvijaya Singh's comments, calling it a "self-goal" for the party.
He said that the party is being "destroyed" by the "same" individuals who continue to act in the same way.

"The same individuals continue to act in the same ways and achieve their own aims. When the Hon. PM names 21 islands after those who have received the #ParamVirChakra, why would she dispute surgical strikes when #ParakramDivas are involved? He said in the tweet, "It's always the same folks ruining the party.

Poonawala stated Lieutenant General Hooda, who oversaw the surgical strikes, joined the Congress, casting more doubt on Digvijay Singh's comments.
"The general who executed the surgical attacks, Lt. Gen. Hooda, entered the Congress! It's #ParakramDivas today! Why would anybody bring up the #surgicalstrike at this point? These self-goals have been achieved before!
