Ask Chidambaram to apologise for saffron terror remarks: BJP
New Delhi: BJP on Friday asked Home Minister
P Chidambaram to tender an apology for his "saffron terror"
remarks in the wake of Congress General Secretary Janardhan
Dwivedi's statement on the issue.
"Dwivedi's words will have some meaning if he makes
Chidambaram to apologise and withdraw his remarks (on saffron
terrorism)," BJP spokesman Prakash Javadekar told reporters.
Otherwise, he said, Dwivedi's remarks would only prove
that "this is the usual Congress policy of speaking in
different tones to suit different constituencies".
The BJP spokesman was reacting to Dwivedi's remarks
today that appears to have sought to distance itself from
Chidambaram's statement about the "recently uncovered
phenomenon of saffron terrorism that has been implicated" in
many bomb blast cases.
