Digvijay agrees with RSS chief's statement on Ayodhya verdict

October 14, 2010 18:23 IST
Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh said on Thursday that he agreed with Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat's statement that the Allahabad high court's verdict on Ayodhya did not amount to a victory for anyone, and asked the Sangh to advise Bharatiya Janata Party leaders to exercise restraint.

"I agree with the statement that RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat made after the Ayodhya verdict," he told reporters. "I think Bhagwat should advise both L K Advani and Ravi Shanker Prasad not to make statements that could fan communal passions."

The Congress leader said the country had moved far ahead of the days of the masjid-temple dispute and added that people wanted peace above all. Leaders like Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav had issued statements on the Ayodhya verdict hoping to please the Muslims but "this has not happened."
