Cong washes hands of Digvijay`s remarks

New Delhi: Congress on Monday washed its
hands of party general secretary Digvijay Singh`s remarks
that RSS was "making bomb factories" saying that "unnecessary
speculation" does not help when an investigation is going on.

"It would be better if you put this question to him,"
was the repeated refrain of party spokesperson Manish Tewari
to questions on whether the party endorsed Singh`s recent
remarks on the RSS.

Asked whether he has ever got such an information from
any other source, Tewari retorted saying he neither headed the
NIA nor CBI and it was not his job to substitute his opinion
with that of the security agencies that have been entrusted
with the task of securing the nation`s interest.
To a question on how does Digvijay Singh come to know
of such things which only investigative agencies can dig out,
Tewari merely said, "It will be appropriate if you ask him the
question."
Tewari at the same time added, "We do a great
disservice to the country by not allowing investigations to
pan out and reach a conclusion....Unnecessary speculation and
communalisation of terror does not help."

Singh had on Saturday courted controversy when he said
that he does not rule out the involvement of Sangh in Mumbai
serial blasts, evoking criticism and condemnation from BJP.

"I do not rule out anything. If they want evidence
about Sangh`s involvement in terror activity, I have got
evidence. But not in this case," Singh had told the media.
Continuing with his tirade, he said yesterday that RSS
was "making bomb factories" and demanded that role of all
kinds of terror groups, including Hindu outfits, should be
probed in connection with the Mumbai serial blasts.
