Centre has no role in seer's arrest: PM

November 14, 2004 19:37 IST

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Sunday made it clear that the Centre had no role in the arrest of Kanchi Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati.

"It is not correct to say that we had a role. To say the least, it is not our concern," he said after launching the National Food For Work Programme in Aloor village in Andhra Pradesh's Ranga Reddy district.

The seer was arrested on November 11 in Mehboobnagar in Andhra Pradesh in connection with the murder of a former employee of the Shankaracharya's Mutt.
