New Delhi: Convince your friend “Imran bhai” to act against terrorists targeting India — is the advice from senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh to his party collegue Navjot Singh Sidhu, who is at centre of a political row for his remarks following the Pulwama attack.
Digvijaya Singh’s tongue in cheek remarks on Tuesday come amid the controversy over the Punjab minister asking whether an entire nation could be blamed for an act by “a handful of people” while referring to the Pulwama terror strike, which evoked sharp reactions from people.
In a series of tweets, Digvijaya Singh asked Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan to show “guts” and hand over Hafiz Saeed and Masood Azhar to India, terming them as “self-confessed perpetrators of terror”. “Navjot Singh Sidhu ji apne dost Imran bhai ko samjhaiye. Uskii vajah se aap ko gaali padh rahi hai (convince your friend Imran bhai. You (Sidhu) are being abused because of him),” the former Madhya Pradesh chief minister said.
