Congress Leader Digvijay Singh asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government on Saturday to provide evidence of air strike carried out by Indian Air Force on Jaish-e-Mohammed’s terror camp in Balakot in Pakistan occupied Kashmir.

“I am not questioning the recent IAF action against Pakistan-based terrorist camps,” Singh told reporters in Indore. “But pictures of any incident in open space can be accessed through satellite technology. So we should also give evidence, the way the United States government presented evidence of Osama bin Laden’s killing before the world.”

Singh also praised Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan for the unconditional release of Indian Air Force pilot Abhinandan Varthaman. While calling Khan a “good neighbour, Singh, a former chief minister of Madhya Pradesh, also said that the Pakistan PM should now “also show bravery and hand over Hafiz Saeed and Masood Azhar to India”.

He further attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi claiming that he has not seen a bigger liar than him. He made the statement after PM Modi said that the NDA government wanted to launch the air strikes since 26/11 Mumbai attacks, however, it was opposed by the UPA government.

Responding to the comment of the Congress leader, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra tweeted a news report that stated 'Masood Azhar's brother confirms the IAF air strike on terror camps'

He said, "They are saying that as the US was given the proof of the death of Osama Ji, that is the proof! Show the friends a News Report Digvijay ji. Let's say that Maulana Masood Azhar is proof of the "Ji". Now then get the value."
