Congress on Monday washed its hands of party general secretary Digvijay Singh's remarks that RSS was "making bomb factories" saying that "unnecessary speculation" does not help when an investigation is going on.
"It would be better if you put this question to him," was the repeated refrain of party spokesperson Manish Tewari to questions on whether the party endorsed Singh's recent remarks on the RSS.
Asked whether he has ever got such an information from any other source, Tewari retorted saying he neither headed the NIA nor CBI and it was not his job to substitute his opinion with that of the security agencies that have been entrusted with the task of securing the nation's interest.
To a question on how does Digvijay Singh come to know of such things which only investigative agencies can dig out, Tewari merely said, "It will be appropriate if you ask him the question." Tewari at the same time added, "We do a great disservice to the country by not allowing investigations to pan out and reach a conclusion....Unnecessary speculation and communalisation of terror does not help."
Singh had on Saturday courted controversy when he said that he does not rule out the involvement of Sangh in Mumbai serial blasts, evoking criticism and condemnation from BJP.
"I do not rule out anything. If they want evidence about Sangh's involvement in terror activity, I have got evidence. But not in this case," Singh had told the media.
Continuing with his tirade, he said yesterday that RSS was "making bomb factories" and demanded that role of all kinds of terror groups, including Hindu outfits, should be probed in connection with the Mumbai serial blasts.
