Digvijaya hits out at Parrikar on "RSS teaching" remark
The AICC General Secretary agreed with the perception in some quarters that BJP is trying to "politically milk" the surgical strikes.
"Obviously yes (BJP is trying to politically milk the surgical strikes). Do you have any doubt? Can you imagine a Defence Minister saying that the surgical strike is because of the teachings of RSS? What an outrageous statement," Singh said in an interview to PTI.
He also charged the BJP-led government with having a strategy of engaging in "limited war" with Pakistan to win the next elections.
Asked if the government is "taking things too <g data-gr-id="40">far"</g> in trying to isolate Pakistan internationally, he said, "Because they (BJP-led NDA government) have failed on every front, they know that they can't win the next elections without having some kind of a limited war with Pakistan. That's their strategy."
The Rajya Sabha member did not clarify if he was referring to the elections to Uttar Pradesh Assembly due early next year, or to Lok Sabha polls in 2019.
