Indian Congress leader appreciates PM Khan for showing new way of being good neighbour
NEW DELHI: A senior leader of the Indian National Congress Digvijaya Singh has appreciated Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan for showing a new way of being a good neighbour by returning the Indian air force captive pilot.
Speaking to news men in west-central city of Indore, the Congress leader demanded of the Modi government to present evidence of the Indian air force’s “air strike” on alleged terrorist camps in Balakot, Pakistan.
“I’ve not seen a bigger liar than Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” Singh continued.
Singh also congratulated Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan for releasing IAF Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman.
The politician also refuted Modi’s claim that after the 26/11 Mumbai attack, the Indian Air Force wanted to conduct a “surgical strike” against Pakistan, but the Congress-led UPA government nixed the idea.
“I can only say that we have not seen a bigger liar than Narendra Modi,” he said.
Earlier, on Feb 28, a leader of India’s ruling party Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) revealed that Narendra Modi’s claims of strike in Pakistan, can help him in winning at-least 22 seats in the upcoming general polls in Karnataka.
Indian PM is at receiving end after escalating tensions with Pakistan in the wake of Pulwama attack.
BS Yehdiyupara, a BJP’s leader from Indian state of Karnataka, unmasking the heinous face of Modi, said escalation with Pakistan and claims of strike will ultimately benefit him in winning the polls.
