Picture Supply : INDIA TV OPINION | Why Rahul can’t take motion in opposition to Digvijaya Singh for his ‘surgical strike’ comment.

Digvijaya Singh surgical strike comment: The Congress on Tuesday seemed to be in two minds on taking a agency stand on the difficulty of surgical strikes carried out by armed forces inside Pakistan.

 
Rahul Gandhi, throughout his ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’, mentioned at a media meet in Nagrota, “I don’t agree with Digvijaya Singh’s assertion. It’s crystal clear that we (as a celebration) disagree with it.  We belief the Military. The armed forces do their job exceptionally properly and needn’t present any proof of that. We don’t admire Digvijaya Singh’s views. I can guarantee you that his views will not be shared by the occasion.”
 
Requested whether or not any motion could be taken in opposition to Digvijaya Singh, Rahul Gandhi replied: “We’re a democratic occasion. We aren’t a dictatorship. Digivijaya Singh’s private views will not be above that of the occasion.”
 
The day earlier than, Digvijaya Singh had questioned the authenticity of surgical strikes, after the Uri terror assault during which 19 jawans have been killed. Singh, whereas addressing a gathering at Sarwari Chowk in Jammu on Monday had mentioned, “ They (BJP) speak about surgical strikes, however there isn’t a proof. All they do is unfold lies.”
 
The identical day, occasion normal secretary Jairam Ramesh mentioned, “the views expressed by Digvijaya Singh are his personal and don’t replicate the place of Congress. Surgical strikes have been carried out earlier than 2014 by the UPA authorities. Congress has supported and can proceed to help all army actions which can be taken within the nationwide curiosity.”
 
Even after Rahul Gandhi’s snub, Digivijaya Singh, on Tuesday, modified tack, and issued a sequence of tweets demanding explanations concerning the 2019 Pulwama terror assaults.  Digvijaya Singh tweeted: “I’ve held our armed forces in excessive esteem. Two of my sisters have been married to Naval officers. There is no such thing as a query of my asking inquiries to Defence officers. My questions are to the Modi authorities.”
 
“ Query 1-Who’s answerable for the unpardonable intelligence failure the place our 40 CRPF personnel have been martyred? 2- From the place the terrorists might supply 300 kg of RDX? 3- Why was the request by CRPF to airlift the CRPF personnel denied? These are my legitimate inquiries to the Modi govt. Don’t I as a accountable citizen have a proper to know the details? Who has been punished for this severe lapse? In another nation, the Dwelling Minister would have been made to resign.”
 
Digvijaya Singh’s antics have change into a sore for the Congress occasion. For the final two days, constructive information about Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ in Jammu and Kashmir has been drowned within the raging controversy over Digivijaya Singh’s remarks about surgical strikes. Lastly, Rahul needed to seem earlier than the media to set the report straight. Digivijaya’s remarks on surgical strike has spoiled the occasion’s narrative concerning the Yatra, with solely 5 days to go for the march to finish in Srinagar.
 
BJP chief Ravi Shankar Prasad attacked Rahul Gandhi for describing Digvijaya Singh’s remarks as his “private opinion”.  He mentioned, ‘Congress resorts to such techniques each time the occasion is trapped because of its leaders’ remarks in opposition to the military. Congress should make clear its stand on terrorism and nationwide safety…Even Rahul Gandhi previously had insulted the armed forces and had demanded proof concerning the surgical strikes.’
 
Congress chief Jairam Ramesh’s anger was evident on Tuesday, when he dismissed the mike of India TV reporter Vijay Laxmi when she was making an attempt to ask questions at Digvijaya Singh through the Yatra. Jairam Ramesh actually shoved the reporter, saying “Please permit us to stroll. Go and ask questions from the Prime Minister.”
 
Jairam Ramesh’s brusqueness and anger was indicative of the considering within the Congress management, which abruptly discovered its ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ narrative, spoiled by its personal senior chief. Digvijaya Singh, nonetheless, appeared unruffled, through the Yatra, and was seen smiling. BJP chief Ravi Shankar Prasad mentioned, it was clear that Jairam Ramesh was making an attempt to stop Digvijaya from talking, and all this seems to be a part of the Congress technique.
 
The goodwill that Rahul Gandhi garnered over the past 130 days of his Yatra has been frittered away by a single comment made by Digvijaya Singh. The Congress now seems to be on the backfoot. Digvijaya Singh is without doubt one of the high leaders of the occasion. He’s trusted by the Gandhi Nehru household. He has been the political guru of Rahul Gandhi. He has been chief minister of Madhya Pradesh for a decade.
 
Congress could properly distance itself from Digvijaya Singh’s comment, however the reality is that, a number of Congress leaders together with Rahul Gandhi, had, previously, demanded proof concerning the surgical strikes.
 
Digivijaya Singh has raised questions on Pulwama terror assault. This case was investigated by Nationwide Investigation Company, and in a matter of 18 months, 13,800 web page cost sheet was filed in courtroom. 19 individuals have been made accused, out of whom, seven have been Pakistani nationals, together with Jaish-e-Muhammad chief Maulana Masood Azhar, and JEM masterminds Rauf Asgar and Ammar Alvi alias Chhota Masood. Twelve accused are Indian nationals. The suicide bomber Adil Dar died on the spot. A number of others together with Mohammed Umer Farooq, Sajjad Ahmed Butt and Mudassir Ahmed Khan have been killed by safety forces. Muhammad Umer was the mastermind of Pulwama assault. He had undergone coaching in Afghanistan.
 
NIA pieced a lot of the proof and arrived on the conclusion that the phobia assault was deliberate by Pakistan’s spy company ISI and was executed with the assistance of terror teams primarily based within the Valely. NIA has clearly established the function of all of the accused, and the matter is in courtroom. NIA director normal Y C Modi mentioned, the police official Devinder Singh, whose identify was talked about by Digvijaya Singh, had no function within the Pulwama assault.
 
Retired Air Marshal Raghunath Nambiar, former chief of Western Air Command, mentioned, “This particular person (Digvijay Singh) doesn’t know what he’s talking about. He has been given incorrect info. I took over Western Air Command two days after Balakot strike. I do know very properly what occurred in Balakot. I can solely guarantee that our courageous pilots did what they have been ordered to do, and so they fulfilled all their aims. Please don’t take heed to false claims of others and do belief our phrase that the Balakot air strike was a hit.”
 
Retired Lt Gen Satish Dua, who was the Corps Commander in Kashmir through the 2016 surgical strike, mentioned, “After the Uri assault, there was a gathering with Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar. It was determined to present a powerful response to the terrorists. Surgical strike was deliberate. We can not disclose in public area the define of the surgical strike. These demanding proof are reducing the morale of the armed forces. Such folks ought to abstain from making such feedback.”
 
I’ve talked about right here what the highest IAF and military officers mentioned concerning the surgical strike and Balakot air strike. What extra proof is needed? The day after the surgical strike, the then DGMO Ranbir Singh had given particulars, and there must be no room for doubts in anyone’s thoughts.
 
No matter Rahul Gandhi could say, Digvijaya Singh stands by his remarks. His sequence of tweets underline this. Digvijaya Singh could now ask Rahul Gandhi, if questioning the military’s valour is just not the occasion coverage, why did Rahul mentioned a couple of weeks in the past that “Chinese language troopers beat up our jawans”?
 
Digvijaya Singh may ask, why one other senior chief P. Chidambaram had demanded official video concerning the surgical strike? Why Congress chief Sandeep Diskhit had described it as a ‘drama’?  Why Sanjay Nirupam had described the surgical strike declare as ‘pretend’? Why didn’t Rahul, at the moment, say that the occasion doesn’t agree with such remarks?
 
Let me put the report straight. Leaders like Digvijaya Singh received the prospect to say this as a result of they know that Rahul Gandhi, previously, had raised questions concerning the military’s valour.
 
Nobody can beat Digvijaya Singh so far as making outrageous feedback are involved. Throughout Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh’s rule, he had described the Batla Home encounter in Delhi as pretend. He had described Al-Qaeda chief as ‘Osama Ji’ with respect. He had described Zakir Naik as a messenger of peace. He doesn’t place confidence in the Indian military’s valour and is asking for proof.
 
To query the military whereas criticizing the federal government is just not honest. However Rahul Gandhi is unwilling to take motion in opposition to Digvijaya Singh as a result of he feels that he’s probably the most vocal and strident critic of BJP and RSS, and this fits his ears.
