Two days after L K Advani said the demolition of Babri mosque had "badly dented" BJP's credibility, Congress today questioned why the Opposition party never sought apology for the incident if it was sorry over the "unfortunate episode".

Party spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi wondered whether the senior BJP leader's remarks are "expedient temporary comments in view of impending electoral politics" in the backdrop of assembly elections in five states. Referring to Advani's earlier statement that he was extremely sad with the demolition, Singvi said "there was sadness but no remorse no apology" and added that Advani and in particularly BJP seems to be making "distinction without differences".

He also questioned whether the recent statement by the BJP leader is also an execrise in speaking with "forked tongue" and "double-facedness" alleging the statements by BJP have always been hallmarks of double speak. Congress reaction came two days after Advani, in a recent post on his blog, reiterated that the day the disputed structure was pulled down was the saddest day of his life and that BJP's credibility was badly dented by the happenings of December 6.
