Congress General Secretary Jairam Ramesh refrained from answering any questions and said that “We have answered all the questions.”
Nagrota (Jammu and Kashmir): An agitated Jairam Ramesh lashed out at the media on Tuesday, claiming that the questions should now be directed at the Prime Minister in the midst of an ongoing controversy about Digvijaya Singh challenging the veracity of the 2019 surgical strikes.
Ramesh, a party MP in charge of communication, told the media while partaking in the Bharat Jodo Yatra in Jammu and Kashmir a day after Singh stirred up controversy and the Congress distanced itself from the leader, saying that his party has already addressed all of the media’s questions regarding the surgical strike controversy and that they should now focus on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The Bharat Jodo Yatra led by Rahul Gandhi resumed from Sitni bypass Nagrota in J&K on Tuesday.
“We have answered all the questions. You go and ask the Prime Minister the questions,” said Jairam Ramesh.
“Congress party has said whatever it wanted to. I tweeted yesterday regarding the same. I do not want to say anything other than this,” he said.
Taking to Twitter, Ramesh claimed that even the UPA government had carried out surgical strikes.
“The views expressed by senior leader Digvijaya Singh are his own and do not reflect the position of Congress. Surgical strikes were carried out before 2014 by the UPA government. Congress has supported and will continue to support all military actions that are in the national interest,” Ramesh tweeted.
This comes after Digvijaya Singh said there is no proof of the 2019 surgical strike against Pakistan, while the Centre claims to have carried out the attack.
