Mumbai: Senior BJP leader Rajnath Singh
today refuted charges made against him and the party veteran
LK Advani that they had met Malegoan blast accused Sadhvi
Pragya Singh Thakur.

"I want to make it clear that neither I nor Advaniji went
to meet her," Singh said here at a conference organised by an
Urdu news channel.

Singh was interrupted during the speech when he said
that terrorism had no colour and there was nothing like
Islamic terrorism and saffron terrorism and any such term
should be condemned.

During the speech, a member of the audience asked him,
"If you do not believe in giving colour to terrorism, then why
did your party leader Advani meet Pragya Singh, who is an
accused in the Malegoan blast case ?".

Answering the query, Singh made it clear that Advani or
he himself never met Pragya Singh.

Later speaking to reporters Singh said, "Congress
leader Digvijay Singh made baseless allegations against
Advaniji. He even named me but it was completely wrong,".
