Union minister Jairam Ramesh today says: "I didn't say Rahul Gandhi should apologise," adding that news channels "twisted my comments".

This comes after the Congress officially distanced itself from the minister's reported remarks yesterday, with the party spokesperson Meem Afzal saying that Gandhi has already clarified his statement in reply to the Election Commission (EC) and the party has also spoken about the issue:

Leaders cutting across political party-lines, it would seem, were involved in competitive communalism if the speeches made by them are any indication.

CNN-IBN reports:

Muslim leaders from Congress, BSP and SP shared dias on August 30 and one of them delivered a hate speech in Muzaffarnagar district of Uttar Pradesh. The BJP leader on the very next day (August 31) was seen addressing a mass gathering and delivered a hate speech.

Dr Zakir Hussain Memorial Trust, an NGO run by law minister Salman Khurshid and his wife Louise Khurshid, has been at the centre of many allegations of financial misappropriation and forgery that have been refuted by the law minister and his wife.

Arvind Kejriwal, sitting on a protest at Parliament Street police station, has been demanding Khurshid be arrested for alleged misappropriation of funds from the Ministry of Social Justice by his trust, quoting a CAG report which alleges “misappropriation of a grant of Rs 71.5 lakh, interest of Rs 15.49 lakh thereon and the irregular release of a further grant of Rs 68.25 lakh”.

According to the report, on the basis of recommendations of the Uttar Pradesh government, a grant-in aid of Rs 71.5 lakh was sanctioned to Dr Zakir Hussain Memorial Trust Delhi, as a non-recurring grant in 2009-10 for distributing aid and appliances under a scheme to be implemented in 17 districts across Uttar Pradesh.
