Despite the Congress warning that party leaders need to watch their words, the former Chief Minister Digvijay Singh has gone on to compare the Prime Minister Narendra Modi with the Pakistan leader Zia-ul-Haq.
Speaking to the reporters in Alirajpur of Madhya Pradesh, Singh said that the ruling party in India is promoting the religious extremism in the country.
It need be mentioned that Madhya Pradesh is to hold state election later this year and politics has thus heated up quite a bit.
This comes on the heels of Congress leader Shashi Tharoor’s controversial ‘Hindu Pakistan’ remark which has created a storm of sorts in the national polity.
Digvjay Singh said that a similar kind of religious extremism is being promoted under Prime Minister Modi’s governance in India as done by former Pakistani dictator Zia-ul-Haq that led to a spurt in neighbouring country Pakistan.
It need be mentioned that Zia-ul-Haq was a Pakistani four-star general who served as the 6th President of Pakistan.>
