"Prime Minister's comment on the issue is misleading. The law of the land has already taken its course and found him guilty. The Supreme Court has said that he should be hanged. Now it is up to the government to carry out the execution," senior BJP leader V K Malhotra said.

Singh, in his press conference yesterday, had said the "law of the land" should be allowed to take its course in dealing with the issue of Parliament attack death row convict Guru.
