BJP National President Shri Rajnath Singh said that the Law Ministry'sdecision to file a supplementary affidavit before the Hon?ble Supreme Court proves that the government had indeed committed a mistake in filing the controversial affidavit. Shri Rajnath Singh said this while answering a question before the press at Agartala.
The BJP President further said that mere acknowledgment of the mistake and the withdrawal of the current affidavit is not enough. The BJP demands an unconditional apology from the government for hurting the religious sentiments of the Hindus, he added.
Shri Rajnath Singh pointed out that affidavits are not filed without formal approval. They are not documents filed on the whims and fancies of any one individual. Affidavits represent the considered view of the government and its unambiguous stand on an issue. This affidavit would have been filed by the ministries of the Government of India only after due examination and necessary approval.
Shri Rajnath Singh said that the BJP demands that responsibility be immediately fixed and action must be taken against all those officers and the ministers concerned who approved this affidavit.
