“I am sorry to say that a person who has been a Chief Minister and now the Defence Minister refuses to give credit to the Army, but instead gives it to the RSS,” Singh said.

Digvijaya Singh further mentioned that it was not right on Parrikar’s part to have credited his Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) training for the surgical strike and not Indian armed forces which carried out the strike.
