After raising a controversy with his unsavoury remarks on Commonwealth Games, Rajya Sabha member Mani Shankar Aiyar on Thursday said he has been asked to keep mum on the issue and would speak about it only after October 15 when the event gets over.
"Now that everybody is talking about it, I think, now I do not need to say anything more and I have promised that I will keep my mouth shut because somebody asked me to do so as they will successfully organise Commonwealth Games. Now, I will open my mouth on October 15," Aiyar told reporters.
He maintained that his criticism of the Commonwealth Games 2010 was nothing new and he had taken this stand since the last two years. He wondered why there was a "hue and cry" on the issue two days back.
