PC attacks BJP on Purulia statement

New Delhi: Home Minister P Chidambaram on Thursday attacked the BJP for its "monumental ignorance" in blaming him for CBI`s lapse in going with an expired warrant seeking extradition of Purulia arms drop case accused Kim Davy.

"By issuing a statement blaming the Home Minister for an alleged discrepancy in the arrest warrant taken by the CBI to apprehend Kim Davy, the BJP spokesperson has displayed monumental ignorance," he said.

Chidambaram was reacting to BJP spokesperson Nirmala Seetharaman`s statement, which held the Home Minister responsible for the CBI goof-up up and that his ministry was moving from one "human error" to another.

The Home minister said he would like the BJP spokesperson to check facts before making sweeping allegations.

He said the BJP spokesperson should know that CBI is not not under the administrative control of the MHA and the ministry concerned is Department of Personnel and Training.
