Digvijay Singh wants Congress leadership to march from Lal Qila to Lal Chowk to protest the abrogation of Article 370

In response to a journalist on whether the Congress leadership would have the courage to march to Lal Chowk, Singh responded, “That’s what I would want them to do.”

The recent move by Government of India to bifurcate the state of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) into two union territories, Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh, doesn’t seem to have gone well with senior Congress leader and Rajya Sabha MP Digvijay Singh. A visibly infuriated Singh invoked Mahatma Gandhi to express his feeling on the matter and said, “What would have Mahatma Gandhi done … in a situation that this bill had come and passed? I think he would have taken a march from Lal Qila to Lal Chowk to show the solidarity with the Kashmiris.”

Singh was speaking at the launch event of journalist Dhirendra K Jha’s book, Ascetic Games: Sadhus, Akharas and the Making of the Hindu vote. He took the stage to demonstrate his views on the recent political developments in J&K and confessed that Congress party was leaderless since Rahul Gandhi’s resigned as party president on July 6, 2019.


In response to a journalist on whether the Congress leadership would have the courage to march to Lal Chowk, Singh responded, “That’s what I would want them to do.”

Singh admitted to his party’s past mistakes including the failure to deal with religious fundamentalisms, preventing Babri Masjid demolition and reversing Supreme Court judgment on Shah Bano.
