Congress leader and Rajya Sabha MP Digvijaya Singh is back to doing what he does best. Creating a controversy again to return to get publicity. This time the senior Congress leader famous for his foot-in-mouth disease had posted an image on Twitter containing decidedly unparliamentary language to criticise Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
In the past, Digvijaya famously referred to terrorists Osama bin Laden and Hafiz Saeed as as “Osamaji” and “saheb”, respectively.
The tweet on PM Modi is a meme – it has a picture of the PM with two jokey sentences both of which have curse words.
Digvijaya’s note on the tweet said he didn’t create the meme, but he “couldn’t help posting it”. His note also says, in an apparent reference to PM Modi: “he is the best in the art of fooling!”
Last year in August, while speaking to reporters, he referred to Pakistan-Occupied-Kashmir as India-Occupied-Kashmir. This, at a time when tensions were at an all time high between the two neighbours, after security forces killed Kashmiri terrorist Burhan Wani on July 8.
