Press Trust of India

Posted: Oct 07, 2004 at 1824 hrs IST

Rejecting BJP's demand for an apology, Petroleum Minister Mani Shankar Aiyar on Thursday categorically ruled out putting back the removed plaque containing Savarkar's quotes in the Cellular Jail.

"I ordered the removal of plaque containing Savarkar's quotes in the Cellular Jail in the capacity of Indian Oil foundation chairman. There is no question of placing the plaque back at its place in the jail till I am chairman," he told reporters on the sidelines of a conference on panchayati raj, here.

"I will not apologise on the issue", he said on being asked about the hue and cry raised by the BJP on Savarkar issue.

The plaque containing Savarkar's quotes in the jail would not be placed there again, he said.
