New Delhi: Congress General Secretary Digivijay Singh is once again on the radar of the principal opposition the Bharatiya Janata Party for his controversial comment on Mumbai serial blasts.

The BJP on Saturday condemned Congress leader Digvijay Singh’s reported comment that the involvement of Hindu outfits in Mumbai blasts cannot be ruled out and sought apology from the Congress president Sonia Gandhi in this regard.

“The BJP strongly condemns the disgusting statements of Singh and seeks an apology from Congress chief Sonia Gandhi. How can he pass such comments on the RSS which has been declared as a Nationalist front by former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru himself?” party spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain said.

While the Investigative Agencies are striving hard to make headway into the July 13 terror attack, Singh’s comment has sparked a good amount of political heat. Taking full advantage of the situation, the BJP has launched an attack on the Congress party.

It is pertinent to mention that in view of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections in 2012, the political temperature is rising in the state and both the national parties do not want to miss a chance to score political points on any issue that would come their way.

This was the reason why Hussain did not miss the chance to target Sonia Gandhi and Rahul.

Invoking the political proximity Singh shares with Rahul, Hussain said, “Things which Rahul cannot speak himself, Singh becomes his spokesperson for those issues.”

“Even when the Home Minister and nation’s Investigating Agencies are not in a position to tell anything about who is behind the recent Mumbai blasts and are still investigating the case, which sources have given the baseless information to Singh,” questioned the BJP leader.

He added, “Is he above the Intelligence Agencies or the Home Minister that he is giving such statements?”

The BJP also charged the Congress General Secretary of trying to play diversionary politics and politicising even sensitive issue like terrorism.
