Former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister and senior Congress party leader Digvijaya Singh has created controversy through his remarks in a clubhouse chat that allegedly included Pakistani journalists.
Terming the revocation of article 370 as an extremely sad decision, Digvijaya Singh said that the Congress party would relook on the issue.
The alleged chat was released on Twitter by BJP leader Amit Malviya. "In a Club House chat, Rahul Gandhi's top aide Digvijaya Singh tells a Pakistani journalist that if Congress comes to power they will reconsider the decision of abrogating Article 370…Really? This is what Pakistan wants," he tweeted.
"When they revoked Article 370 then humanity was missing as Kashmiriyat is something which is basically fundamentals of secularism because in a Muslim-majority state there was a Hindu king and both worked together. In fact, the reservation in Kashmir was given to Kashmiri pandits in government services," said Digvijay Singh, reports Times Now.
"Therefore, the decision of revoking Article 370 and reducing the statehood of Jammu and Kashmir is extremely a sad decision and the Congress party would certainly have to take a relook at this issue," he added.
