Jaipur: Congress leader Digvijay Singh
on Saturday defended Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for calling
his Pakistani counterpart Yusuf Raza Gilani "a man of peace".

"As far as Prime Minister`s statement is concerned, I
think that liberal democratic forces in Pakistan have to be
strengthened because of influence of the ISI in the army is
something which has led to terrorism."

"I think what the Prime Minister has said is fully
justified that liberal democratic forces in India and
Pakistan must come together to fight fundamentalist forces in
both the countries," he said.
