New Delhi, August 12: Reacting to Indian National Congress leader Digvijaya Singh's statement on Jammu and Kashmir, Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said that whenever he speaks the vote share of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) increases and Congress' decreases. Digvijaya Singh on Sunday said Narendra Modi government has burnt hands in the fire. He also appealed to Centre to be 'careful or will lose Kashmir'

"If Singh wants to see his face in Pakistan, then we can't do anything. The more he speaks the more BJP's vote share increases and Congress' decreases," Prasad said adding, "I want to ask Sonia Ji, now that she has become Congress president again if this is Digvijay Singh speaking or it is their party's line as well."

On Sunday, referring to some international media report, Singh said, "See the international media and what is happening in Kashmir. They (government) have burnt their hands in fire by abolishing Article 370, saving Kashmir is our primary focus. I appeal to Modi Ji, Amit Shah Ji and Ajit Doval Ji to work thoughtfully otherwise Kashmir will slip out of our hands."

Singh also responded to BJP leader Shivraj Singh Chauhan's remark that "former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru was 'criminal' who committed the crime of imposing Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir". Congress leader said Shivraj is not even the dust of Nehru Ji's feet, he should be ashamed.
