The leader compared Modi a " Adolf Hitler" and called separatist leader Masarat Alam "Sahab (sir)".

Hours after Alam's arrest in Kashmir, Digvijay asked, "Under what section of the law has the Jammu and Kashmir government arrested Masarat Alam sahab? The government must tell us."

He also asked, "What they've said and done amounts to waging a war against the nation. They should be charged under the National Security Act."

Criticising the Prime Minister of India, Digvijay said, "It is the most unbecoming of a Prime Minister to talk about the internal politics of a country. It shows his divisive mindset."

During an interview with a TV news channel, the senior Congress leader was quoted as saying, "He must learn that since 1947 till now, no Indian Prime Minister has talked about the internal politics outside the country. Did President Barack Obama talk about his differences with the Republicans when he came to India?"
