Madhya Pradesh Minister and Congress leader Govind Singh Kushwah has come out to defend senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh’s insensitive remark on Pulwama terror attack.
Govind Singh, Madhya Pradesh Minister, on Congress leader Digvijaya Singh terming #PulwamaTerrorAttack an ‘accident’: Digvijaya Singh ne jab bhi koi baat kahi hai, toh bhale hi abhi koi aalochna kare lekin baad mein vo baat satya nikli hai. pic.twitter.com/LmuMBGv6cy

Govind Singh Kushwah has said that we may criticise Digvijaya Singh for whatever he says, but eventually what he says turns out to be the truth. Earlier, during the #MeToo movement in India, Govind Singh had said that women often make such complaints (against sexual abuse and harassment) “for money”.
Yesterday, in a series of tweets, Congress leader Digvijaya Singh had tried to downplay the Pulwama terror attack by calling it an ‘accident’. He had even cast aspersions on the air strikes carried out by the Indian Air Force and even tried to question the credibility of Indian Government.
Downplaying terror attacks or absolving the actual terrorists and pinning the blame on someone he doesn’t agree with politically is not something new for Singh. In 2010, months after the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack, Digvijaya Singh, along with film maker Mahesh Bhatt and others had launched a book which claimed that the Mumbai terror attacks were an RSS conspiracy.
