Ranchi: Union Minister of State for External Affairs General VK Singh today hit back on senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh and asked him to reply whether Rajiv Gandhi’s death was an assassination or accident. Replying to the queries of the journalists during
a press conference held at the state BJP headquarters here he said that the former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister should first answer whether Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated or he died in an accident.
“You call a terrorist attack an attack. With all due respect to Mr. Digvijay Singh, I want to ask him was Rajiv Gandhi’s death an accident or assassination. You give an answer to this question then we will also answer all your questions,” he said after being pointed to the tweets of the senior Congress leader who had raised questions on the credibility of the air strike and also sought to know the numbers of a terrorist who were killed in the Balakot air strikes.
When probed further on the number of casualties in the air strikes he said that those who are demanding the numbers they should be sent to the spot and there they should do the headcount. He said that putting out numbers was not a game of ‘Kanchas’ where
one makes claims of hitting one or two but rather it is a very serious matter. “Has any proof of any army action given in the last 70 years,” he said adding that all those who are talking about the numbers are making baseless noise and their real intention was to divert the real issue.
General Singh said that when there is an attack on the nation than all should unite and speak in one voice then only the impact would be visible. He said that the enemy will try to make sure that all do not come together and speak in one voice. “Initially I had thought that all were speaking in one voice but some of them started making the ‘Besuraraag’ thinking of the upcoming elections,” he said.
