BJP fetes young man who praised Modi for surgical strike on terrorists during Digvijaya’s rally in Bhopal

New Delhi: The BJP has felicitated the young man whose arrival at a Digvijaya Singh rally in Bhopal on Monday instantly became the subject of a viral video.

The senior Congress leader, who faces 2008 Malegaon blasts accused Pragya Singh Thakur in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, was attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his commitment to recover black money stashed abroad and deposit 15 lakh in every voter’s account at the time.

When the man responded to Singh’s question on whether anyone had received the money, he was asked to come on stage.

“Modi ji fulfilled a surgical strike on terrorists and killed them,” he said. He was stopped and moved away by Congress leaders.

The young man, who was identified as Amit Mali, later told that despite his gatecrashing of the rally, nobody “misbehaved” with him afterward.
