Digvijay`s claim about Karkare not credible: Venkaiah

Last Updated: Tuesday, January 4, 2011 - 22:24

Mumbai: Despite Digvijay Singh producing
record of his conversation with slain ATS chief Hemant Karkare
on 26/11, senior BJP leader Venkaiah Naidu said the Congress
general secretary`s claim had no "credibility".
"Singh`s claim (about conversation with slain ATS chief
Hemant Karkare) has no credibility. It seems Congress has
given a general power of attorney to him to divert the public
attention from major issues like 2G spectrum scam and CWG
corruption," Naidu said told reporters here.

"If Karkare had any life threat then he could have spoken
to the Chief Minister or the Prime Minister. Why would he
speak to Singh? Karkare`s wife Kavita had also refuted any
such claim," he added.

Singh today produced record of the conversation Karkare
had with him on 26/11 and sought apology from Maharashtra Home
Minister R R Patil and all others who had dubbed him a "liar".

Singh released the details of the call records he
obtained from BSNL`s Bhopal office at a press conference in
New Delhi.
