Senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh's statement about the surgical strike has raised the political temperature. BJP spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia said that the Congress 'don't have patriotism left in them now.' Congress party also distanced itself from the comments made by Digvijaya Singh on the 2016 surgical strikes and said the views expressed by him “are his own” and “do not reflect the position" of the party.Congress has supported & will continue to support all military actions that are in the national interest,” AICC communication incharge Jairam Ramesh tweeted.
The views expressed by senior leader Digvijaya Singh are his own and do not reflect the position of Congress. Surgical strikes were carried out before 2014 by UPA government.

BJP spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla also tweeted, “Once again Congress questions Surgical Strike & echoes Pak narrative on Pulwama. Digvijaya Singh had even blamed India for 26/11 ; Rahul G said Sena ki Pitai ho gayi. This Is not INC but PPP- Pak Parast Party that loves to do attack on manobal of our forces ! Shameful.”
On a day we observe Parakram Diwas, salute Netaji’s legacy & honour our braves - Congress once again attacks the manobal of our forces— Shehzad Jai Hind (@Shehzad_Ind) January 23, 2023
From pitai ho gayi to khoon ki dalaali, doubting Surgical Strikes,Balakote & blaming India for Pulwama to give terror a cleanchit!
