Stirring controversy Congress Rajya Sabha MP Digvijaya Singh, on Sunday, alleged that the BJP and Bajrang Dal were taking money from Pakistan's ISI. He also stated that BJP was not part of India's freedom struggle, unlike the Congress. Questioning where they were in 1947, Singh condemned BJP's nationalism. He also made a big allegation that most Pakistani spies in India were non-Muslim.
"Our fight with BJP and Sangh is ideological. They did not participate in India's Freedom struggle. Now, they are giving us advice about nationalism. Where were they before 1947? Where were they when Indira Gandhi destroyed Pakistan into two? The number of Pakistan spies found in India are majorly non-muslims. Muslims spies are fewer. Bajrang Dal, BJP - they are taking money from ISI," he said.
Previously, after the abrogation of Article 370, the senior Congress leader had slammed the Centre. He had said that the Congress party had supported article 370 in order to save Kashmir and for the betterment of India. He added that BJP founder Syama Prasad Mookerjee himself was a part of the committee and supported Article 370. Condemning the passage of the Jammu And Kashmir (Reorganisation) Bill 2019, he said that Kashmiri residents should have been consulted on the decision.
"The way Article 370 has been abrogated is dubious. They should have at least asked the opinion of Kashmir residents before deciding. We pray for the safety of Kashmir as we cannot do anything else," he said. He also stated that the Modi government's move to abrogate article 370 was done to increase their own popularity. He also added the one must not forget that Kashmir is surrounded by Pakistan, Afghanistan, and China which may lead to problems in the region.
After Eid celebrations were peacefully celebrated in the Valley, Singh had attempted to communalise the event of revocation of Article 370. He said, "Go to BBC.com and see what is happening there. What I had told is becoming true. They have scorched their hands in the fire, saving Kashmir is our priority. I request the honourable Modi ji to Amit Shah ji and Ajit Doval to do whatever they want to do, otherwise, Kashmir will get out of hand."
