Withdraw the Sethu affidavit, Advani tells PM

September 12, 2007 22:33 IST

Senior BJP leader L K Advani on Wednesday sought immediate withdrawal of the government's affidavit before the Supreme Court in connection with the Sethusamudram case that said there was no historical evidence to establish existence of Lord Ram.

Advani said he also conveyed his protest over the affidavit to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh [Images] when they were together at a dinner meeting.

"I told the prime minister that the affidavit was highly objectionable. I met the law minister also and told him that it should be immediately withdrawn," he said.
