Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh today said there was no question of his going back on his recent statement that slain Maharashtra police ATS chief Hemant Karkare was receiving threats to his life from Hindu terrorists.

"I continue to stand by what I said and I do not think that there is any question of my retracting it or going back on it," Singh said.

The Congress General Secretary said he "did not make the remarks out of turn or out of context." "It was strange when people like L K Advani go and meet Pragya Thakur, nothing is said but when I go to meet someone, I'm branded as anti-national or pro-Muslim," Digvijay said.

Asked if Congress President Sonia Gandhi or party General Secretary Rahul Gandhi had asked him about his remarks on Karkare, Singh replied "I am glad that I enjoy their blessings."
