Accusing the ruling BJP of indulging in “chest-thumping” over the Armys surgical strikes on terrorist launch pads across the Line of Control (LoC), Congress leader Digvijaya Singh on Sunday called Prime Minister Narendra Modi a “war-monger”.

“This kind of strikes have taken place earlier also. The only difference is this chest-thumping and media sort of going overboard. This never happened before because the earlier Prime Minister thought these issues are best left to be dealt with by the security forces,” Singh told CNN News 18.

“What is happening now is chest thumping being done by (BJP President) Amit Shah and people down the party line. Both Modi and (National Security Advisor) Ajit Doval are war-mongers,” added Singh.

His comments came as he reacted to Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan who while praising the Prime Minister for the surgical strikes said Modi’s “56-inch” chest had now swelled to “100 inches”.

“Modi’s chest is not 56 inches but 100 inches now,” Chouhan said at an event in Bhopal during the day.

The surgical strikes were carried out on the night of September 28-29 by the Special Forces of the Indian Army.

        The impact of hype created by NDA government about surgical strike must be studied. They should have clarity of road map to deal with present situation. The Consideration of political aspirations of "son of soil" is important aspect. We should not overlook stan has two Vito powers on its side. United States though tried to cozy up with India, still one should not forget the importance of geopolitical advantage of Pak. Entire supply of US troops to Afghanistan is ping through stan. As a failed Nation stan has nothing at stake. They even cannot protect their own citizens from these terrorists. China is waiting to take advantage of situation to exercise greater control over stan. The quiet warfare is a best option at present like it was carried out during time of MMS. What was achieved by making this surgical strikes public? Even today terrorists are attacking our army bases. Are we sure about going to war?

          I knew it was too good to be true when they said they stood with the government. These fellows are the same ones who use the honorific 'ji' when talking about terrorists
