New Delhi, Jul 16: Bharatiya Janta Party on Saturday, Jul 16 slammed Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh for his comments that the involvement of Hindu outfits in Mumbai blasts cannot be ruled out. BJP leaders demanded an apology from Congress President Sonia Gandhi for the controversial comment from her party-man.

"The BJP strongly condemns the disgusting statements of Digvijay Singh and seeks an apology from Congress chief Sonia Gandhi on this," BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain said.

BJP leader accused Digvijay Singh of playing politics over Mumbai blasts that killed 19 people and injured another 143. BJP spokesman also added that Congress general secretary is trying to divert the course of investigations.

"Even when the Home Minister and nation"s investigating agencies are not in a position to tell anything about who is behind the recent Mumbai blasts and are still investigating, which sources does Digvijay Singh have to make such statements," the BJP leader questioned.

Earlier on the day, Digvijay Singh said that the involvement of Hindu elements in the Mumbai blasts on Jul 13 cannot be ruled out. He said "Nothing can be ruled out. We should allow the NIA and Anti-Terrorism Squad of Maharashtra to do their jobs. But we cannot rule out anything."
