New Delhi, CJ 24, Mar 24, 2015
Several foreign policy experts, journalists, and politicians criticized the Narendra Modi Government and General V K Singh for sharing the stage with separatists during Pakistan National Day event. But, surprisingly, J& K’s former CM showed his support to Modi Government and General VK Singh using Twitter on Monday.
General V K Singh stood shoulder to shoulder with Pakistan’s High commissioner Abdul Basit along with separatist leaders like Mirwaiz Uaar Farooq, Yaseen Malik, and Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Monday. After the event, the MoS interacted with media and said he attended the event because the Government asked him to do so.
#PartyWithEnemy was one of the most popular tags on Twitter and Facebook during Monday evening. Several strategic affairs experts and journalists termed this incident as complete political disaster.
Surprisingly, Jammu and Kashmir’s former chief minister Omar Abdullah Twitted in support of General VK Singh. He twitted that it was Gen VK Singh’s duty to attend the Pak National Day event as Minister of State for External Affairs.
How ridiculous to expect that Gen VK SIngh would not attend the Pak National Day event. It’s his job as MOS EA to attend diplomatic events. — Omar Abdullah (@abdullah_omar) March 23, 2015
After few hours from the event, General VK Singh also attracted eyeballs by Twitting about moral and legal obligations. Perhaps, he was pointing that it was part of his job to attend the event.
