Digivijaya attacks Centre over Masood Azhar's release in 1999

ANI  |  Politics 

on Thursday attacked the Centre for releasing in 1999 during BJP-led NDA government's regime.

"Mr. Ravi Shankar Prasad, your BJP government handed over Mazoor Azhar to and also gave million dollars to them. Would you say something on this," Singh tweeted.

He also asked Prasad to question and Security Advisor (NSA) over the intelligence failure in the Pulwama terror attacks.

"Have you questioned and NSA about the Gross intelligence Failure during the Pulwama attack because of which 44 CRPF personnel lost their lives. If your BJP government had not released during the Kandhar hijack, the attack on the Parliament in 2002 and the Pulwama attack could have been averted," Singh said in his next tweet.

Earlier Singh had sparked controversy by terming the Pulawama terror attack 'an accident'.

He said after the Pulwama "durghatna" (accident) and the (IAF) strike, "sandeh" (doubt) is being expressed in some following which "vishwasniyata" (credibility) of the government is under question.

In another tweet, Singh had questioned the outcome of the air strike and demanded to come clear on the same.

"Prime Minister, some ministers of your government say 300 terrorists killed, says 250 are killed, Yogi Adityanath says 400 people were killed and your minister SS Ahluwalia says that no one died. And you are silent about this issue. The country wants to know who is a liar here," he had said.
