Hyderabad, Apr 4: BJP national spokesperson and former Union Minister Rajiv Pratap Rudy today said senior party leader L K Advani had never said he was not aware of the decision to send former External Affairs Minister Jaswant Singh along with terrorists by aircraft to Kandahar to release abducted Indians.

Addressing the press here, Mr Rudy said the decision to send Mr Singh to Kandahar was taken by the Cabinet Committee on Security during the NDA regime in a meeting which was also attended by Mr Advani, the then Home Minister. The procedure and modalities were left to the respective departments, he added.

Responding to a query relating to AICC President Sonia Gandhi's reported remarks on Mr Advani's statement at a meeting in Rajasthan yesterday, he alleged, ''Ms Gandhi does not know many things which are happening in the country, even in her UPA government.''
