Digvijaya Singh, General Secretary of All India Congress, on early Thursday morning went on social networking site Twitter and called Prime Minister Narendra Modi, as “war monger”. Calling PM Modi by names, he raised questions as to why Modi was slowly leading India into a “war-like situation”. He alleged that the Prime Minister was simply using this situation as an option for the next elections. He was of the opinion that India and Pakistan should be fighting Hunger and Malnutrition together, instead of fighting against each other. But Modi’s actions are only strengthening the ISI and Pakistan Army clique, he added.

He further said that all the rising situations are leading to the weakening of the political leadership in Pakistan. He questioned the logic behind two countries with numerous nuclear weapons being at war with each other. Can India and Pakistan afford it, he asked. He went on to urge both the countries about maintaining peace and said that both the countries should come to a negotiating table for a better future for the children.

The Congress party, in general, has been quite vocal about the BJP-led central government’s policy on Pakistan. The Congress leadership has been accusing the Modi government and in particular the Prime Minister of hogging the limelight of the success of the surgical strikes by Indian soldiers. Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi had even accused the Modi government profiteering from the death of soldiers and made statements like, “Khoon ki Dalali” for the Indian Prime Minister.

    Mr. Digvijay Singh. The country hates you, and rightly so because it was you and your political party that created a situation that we the people of India are facing today. You are same person who denied police help to Gujarat in spite of Modi's repeated requests. Congress created policies that harmed the nation which we can feel even today. On one side where even a "war-monger" like Hafeez Sayeed is biting dust, you are calling a government bad for showing India's strength, character and positive image all over world. We the people of India kicked you out with humiliation for you caused scams and corruption and bad repute to the country. The only thing we ask from you now it's to shut your mouth and enjoy the money that you looted from us.

      What are Digvijay Singh's credentials to talk about foreign policy? Is there anything new or unexpected in what he has said? He only knows how to attack Modi.
