Jammu, Jan 23 (PTI) Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh targeted the BJP-led central government on Monday, alleging that it gave no proof of surgical strikes while claiming to have killed many terrorists.

He alleged that the Narendra Modi dispensation was ruling the country through a "bundle of lies".

"They (Centre) talk about surgical strikes and that they have killed so many of them (terrorists) but there is no proof," Singh told a gathering during the Bharat Jodo Yatra here.

"Pulwama attack took place. Forty of our CRPF jawans were martyred. Why were they killed? The CRPF director requested that it (Pulwama) is a sensitive zone that CRPF jawans should be sent to Delhi from Srinagar through plane, but Modi ji refused it. Why did he refuse," he asked.

The government has not placed before Parliament or people the details of the incident until now, he said.

He claimed Pulwama is a hotbed of terrorism where all vehicles are checked and asked "why a Scorpio vehicle, which came from the opposite direction, was not checked" when the attack took place on a CRPF convoy. PTI AB KR SMN
