Bhopal: Congress leader Digvijay Singh on Thursday said he agreed with RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat`s statement that High Court verdict on Ayodhya issue did not amount to a victory for anyone and asked the Sangh to advise BJP leaders to exercise restraint.
"I agree with the statement that RSS chief Mohan
Bhagwat after the Ayodhya verdict," he told reporters.
"I think Bhagwat should advise both (L K) Advani and
(Ravi Shanker) Prasad not to make statements that could fan
communal passions," the Congress general secretary said.
He said the country had moved far ahead of the days of
the masjid-temple dispute and added that people wanted
peace above all.
Singh said that leaders like SP chief Mulayam Singh
Yadav had issued statements on the Ayodhya verdict hoping to
please the Muslims but "this has not happened".
