Cong does not endorse Digvijay`s remark on Advani

Cong appeared to distance itself from Digvijay Singh`s charge that LK Advani and his party were responsible for "encouraging terrorism".

New Delhi: After disapproving of his letter
to Anna Hazare, Congress on Friday appeared to distance itself
from party general secretary Digvijay Singh`s charge that BJP
leader LK Advani and his party were responsible for
"encouraging terrorism" in the country.

"I think you should ask this question to Digvijay Singh,"
party spokesman Rashid Alvi told reporters when asked whether
the Congress endorsed Singh`s stand on the issue.

Addressing a rally in Saidnagar village in Rampur
district in Uttar Pradesh, Singh had said, "BJP and LK Advani
are responsible for encouraging terrorism in the country. They
stoke communal hatred and blame the minority community."
Singh is in-charge of party affairs in poll-bound
Uttar Pradesh.

Two days back, the AICC had disapproved of the letter
written by Singh to Hazare, saying it was not required after
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh wrote to the Gandhian.

In a snub to Singh, a senior Congress leader had
remaked that what was important was "the issue and not
individuals".
