Congress Distances From Digvijaya Singh's Statement On Army Surgical Strikes; What Rahul Gandhi, MP CM Shivraj Singh said

Jammu: Amid an ongoing row over Congress leader Digvijaya Singh questioning the authenticity of the 2019 surgical strikes, Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday distanced himself from the statement of Singh. He said- Never raised questions on the bravery of the army. If the army does something then there is no need of proof on that. This is Digvijayji's personal opinion. I do not agree with this.

Rahul said as far as Digvijaya ji's statement is concerned. We completely disagree with what he said on the air strike. We have full faith in our army. If the army does something then there is no need to give proof. I completely disagree with Digvijaya Singh's statement. Personally, I believe that whatever Digvijayji said is his personal opinion. The Congress party also does not agree with this.

Views expressed by Digvijaya Singh are his own

Senior leader Jairam Ramesh said the views expressed by Digvijaya Singh are his own and do not reflect the position of Congress. Surgical strikes were carried out before 2014 by UPA Government. Congress has supported & will continue to support all military actions that are in the national interest, Ramesh tweeted.

Tukde-tukde gang is walking with Rahul: Shivraj

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has sought answers from Rahul Gandhi. CM Shivraj said, I seek answer from Rahul Gandhi that what kind of Yatra is this? Tukde-tukde gang is walking with you. The morale of the army is being lowered. Digvijay Singh is walking in Bharat Jodo Yatra with Rahul Gandhi. Digvijaay ji is asking for proof of surgical strike, by this he is showing that he is standing with Pakistan. Pakistan is in the DNA of the Congress itself.

Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia has also besieged former CM Digvijaya on the statement.  Digvijay's brother Laxman Singh said - We are proud of our army. He also kept his point through tweet.

Damage control by Digvijaya

Singh, trying to put an end to the row, also said, "I have got the greatest regard for the Defence forces", as the leaders marched on along with other padayatris.

The Bharat Jodo Yatra led by Rahul Gandhi resumed from Sitni bypass, Nagrota in Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday.
