My statement on Karkare doesn`t help terrorists: Digvijay
Singh triggered a controversy when he said that Karkare had talked to him before his death in 26/11.
Bhopal: Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh on Sunday rubbished BJP`s accusation that his statement on the late Maharashtra ATS chief Hemant Karkare amounted to helping terrorists in India or Pakistan.
Singh triggered a controversy recently when he said that Karkare had talked to him about threats from radical right-wing groups before his death in Mumbai terror attack.
"I do not think that there is any way in which it can be said that my statement on Karkare helped terrorists in India or Pakistan in any regard," Digvijay said.
Singh said that BJP and RSS appeared to be fond of criticising him but he would like to ask them about those who belonged to the Sangh Parivar and were linked to blasts and other similar activities.
Asked if the reported confession by Swami Aseemanand would blunt the Sangh Parivar`s attack on him, Singh said he would not be surprised `if they said Digvijay Singh is a bigger terrorist than Swami Aseemanand`.
The former Chief Minister was highly critical of the way BJP government in Madhya Pradesh dealt with terrorists.
"Instead of apprehending terrorists, the state government was doing its best to shelter them", Singh alleged.
