New Delhi, Feb 4 (PTI) Senior Congress leader DigvijaySingh today attacked BJP chief ministers of Gujarat and MadhyaPradesh and expressed concern over "Sanghi" terrorism.

Referring to reported findings of Special InvestigatingTeam (SIT) probing the Gujarat riots that no records,documentations or minutes of the crucial law and ordermeetings held by the government during the riots had beenkept, Singh said it is a "criminal offence" and needs to beprobed thoroughly "at whose insistence it was done".

"If SIT has found some incriminating evidence againstthe Chief Minister (Narendra Modi) and from what I have seenin the media, I believe that incriminating recrods have beendestroyed or tampered with, it''s a criminal offence in itselfand it needs to be thoroughly probed at whose insistence itwas done," he told reporters on the sidelines of a bookrelease function here.

Asked whether he would seek Modi''s resignation over this,Singh said "morality is not an issue" for BJP and that theGujarat Chief Minister will follow the line of party chiefNitin Gadakari "who found Karnataka Chief Minister B SYeddyurappa''s act of corruption as immoral and not illegalsaying the latter had no need to resign."

Accusing the BJP dispensation in Madha Pradesh of"misusing government money" for "disinformation campaignagainst Christians and minorities", Singh said, "on one handthe Chief Minister (Shivraj Singh Chouhan) wants to go onhunger strike saying he has no money but on the other hand Ihave got the information that a sum of Rs 150 crore was spenton Narmada Kumbh."

He asked, "What was the purpose behind it?"

"The government money is being spent in Narmada Kumbh fordisinformation campaign against Christians and minorities.

This is outrageous and the government of India must take noteof it," he said.

Earlier, delvering his address after releasing the book,"Christianity, Hindutva, Conversion: FAQ''s" by Father DominicEmmanuel, the AICC leader clarified he was not a non-believerlike CPI leader D Raja, who also spoke on the occassion. Theprogramme was organised by Delhi Catholic Archdiocese.

"I am a good Hindu," Singh said while attacking RSS andVHP for their "disinformation campaign" saying it goes to anunimaginable extent and that worried him.

Calling for efforts to counter to the "disinformationcampaign" by RSS and VHP, he said the threat of fundamentalismneeds to be fought in every nook and corner of the country asIndia''s future depends on it.

Singh also cited late Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru assaying that majority fundamentalism leads to facism. "This isthe biggest threat before the country," he said.

"We have to fight Sanghi terrorism with all seriousness,"the Congress leader said.
