New Delhi, Mar 29 (UNI) Uttarakhand Chief Minister Maj Gen (Retd) BC Khanduri today denied that he had made any comments on the Kandahar hostage issue as reported in a section of the press.
Mr Khanduri was asked a question about senior BJP leader LK Advani's comments about the Kandahar incident in his recently released book 'My Country My Life' at a Meet the Press Programme held by the Press Club of India here yesterday.
In a statement issued here today, the Uttarakhand Chief Minister said since he was not a cabinet minister in the Vajpayee Government at that time and had not participated in the deliberations, he had simply remarked to a question that he was not in a position to comment on the issue.
He said his words had been misunderstood.
